Dark Oolong tea. After enjoying our 2015 harvest Bei Dou so much, we decided to stock the 2016 spring harvest Bei Dou Da Hong Pao too.

The most famous of WuYi rock oolong teas, Da Hong Pao is renowned for it's depth of flavour. Our Bei Dou Da Hong Pao Oolong varietal has a complex body of flavours. This is a very well balanced rock tea, with a heavier bake. Great option for those who like a heavier, fuller flavoured oolong tea.

Tea Tasting Notes

Tea Appearance: Dark, long leaf with hints of green and red. Medium-Heavy oxidisation >60%.

Tea Liquor: Bright, clear, golden liquor.

Tea Aroma: Particularly when preparing in a GaiWan the aroma is distinct from other rock teas, whilst still maintaining that satisfying comforting essence which characterises great WuYi Shan teas.

Tea Taste: Soft and smooth Oolong. Flavours emerge, from initial sweetness on the tip of the tongue, through a well balanced astringency as the liquor runs over your palate to a long silky finish.
