Perhaps the best known rock tea from the Wu Yi Mountains of the Chinese Fujian province, this tea is a rare find. This Da Hong Pao Oolong is a highly oxidized Oolong whose large, twisted leaves have a unique black appearance. It brews an amber cup that almost startles with its dramatic aroma and smooth, clean finish.
Brewing Tips:Our Royal Red Robe Oolong tea should be made with cold, filtered water that has been brought to a point just short of boiling (190-200° F). Using one rounded teaspoon of loose tea or one teabag for each cup required, pour the boiling water over the tea leaves. Royal Red Robe Oolong tea should be steeped for 3-4 minutes. Once the ideal brewing time has been reached, the leaves should be removed to prevent further steeping. Decant and enjoy!
