Da Hong Pao oolong tea is famous for its unique floral fragrance and specially Wuyi rock tea taste and fragrance. For the 6 mother trees of Da Hong Pao tea trees in Jiu Long Ke in Wuyi Shan city, there are actually three tea trees species there, namely Que She, Bei Dou, Qi Dan. In 2006, the Wuyishan Government had stipulated the forbidden picking on the 6 mother trees. Hence, all the Da Hong Pao in the market is the cuttings from the mother trees(we call pure Da Hong Pao) or blended tea(Rou Gui, Shui Xian and several other Wuyi teas to blend as commodity Da Hong Pao).
This Da Hong Pao is made from the cuttings from the original mother trees of Qidan, which are genetically identical plants. Its rock tea taste and high floral aroma are most well-received by many tea drinkers who seek for the pure Da Hong Pao.
This tea is from Zheng Yan areas in Wuyishan, which is famous for its charming & delighted strong rock tea fragrance and taste. Super alive tea soup and strong floral and sweet after taste. Once you experience this taste and fragrance, you will not forget what it is like.
All of our Wuyi rock tea is baked extremely slowly by charcoal, and only arrive in the market in August of every year. So the new Wuyi rock tea still has a little bit charcoal feeling in taste. As the tea breathe under the air, the charcoal aroma will disappear slowly and the tea’s original taste and aroma will come out.
All of medium to high-roasted Wuyi rock tea can be stored for over 2-3 years.
