The Chinese have made rock tea, or yancha, in the Wuyi Mountains of northwestern Fujian Province for over 150 years. This tea is a descendant of the  three original tea plants that made Big Red Robe (aka Da Hong Pao). Thus, it is a darker twisted oolong. This tea is lighter than our Wuyi Da Hong Pao.

Ingredients: Oolong tea.
