This Da Hong Pao is the most revered tea among all Wuyi oolongs! Cuttings were taken from the original Da Hong Pao mother trees (only 6 in existence!) and expertly nurtured to create this Purebred Da Hong Pao. Teas from the original Da Hong Pao mother trees (Jiulong Ke rocky cliff of Wuyi Mountain) sell for $90,000 for 50 grams. So consider this pure pedigree child a much more affordable selection. Production of this Da Hong Pao Oolong (translates to Red Cloak Grande) is extremely limited, only 10kg is produced each year, harvested from two-second generation 100+ year old noble breed trees located in the heights of Wuyi (almost identical terrior as the mother trees). Organic, natural and 100% pure.
Masterfully processed, this tea is a testament to the famous name it represents. Complex doesn't even begin to describe this tea. Dark cocoa, tobacco, backed sweet crust, and a floral bouquet show beautifully on the nose. The taste offers deep nuisances of sweet raisins, tobacco, and muted citrus like grapefruit and pomelo. A truly life changing drinking experience.
