Big Red Robe (Da Hong Pao in Chinese) is one of the most famous and exclusive teas in the world. It is designated both a ‘Chinese Famous Tea’ and a ‘The Four Great Bushes’ tea. Produced on the slopes of the Wu-Yi mountain range in Fujian, this rather robust-looking Oolong from organic cultivation speaks for itself. Following tradition, the first infusion of this tea is not drunk but is given to Buddha as a ritual offering. The second infusion then develops into a combination of ripe, nutty flavours, accompanied by elegant Muscatel notes with a soft, smooth roasted taste.

 

According to legend, the mother of an emperor from the Ming Dynasty fell sick and tea from four bushes growing on Wuyi rock cured her. To show his gratitude, the emperor sent red robes to Wuyi to cover those four bushes.
