Da Hung Pao (Big Red Robe), also known as the Emperor of Tea, is a highly fermented oolong. It originated from wild rare tea plants that were found growing on the cliff of Wuyi Mountain. Da Hung Pao yields a golden yellow liquid that produces a pleasant long lasting aftertaste. This tea is also renowned for its nourishing medicinal properties. It is said that a high-ranking official of the king fell sick and the imperial doctors could not treat him. Monks from the Fujian province heard of this and brought tea leaves from the Wuyi Mountain. The tea restored the officer to health. As a measure of his thanks he gave his red robe to the monks since the monks did not want any money. This is how the tea earned the name Da Hung Pao, meaning big red robe. An expertly-crafted Big Red Robe, roasted lightly to highlight the distinctive mineral notes not found in any other tea.

Glad I tried it, but...Review by Elf
I had heard of this tea, and how rare and expensive it is, and wondered if I'd like it. I don't. Those "mineral notes" are not for me; to me, it tastes just like my sidewalk smells after a rain. So, one star because I don't like it and one star because it is advertised. (Posted on 1/26/2018)
Full bodied goodnessReview by Ben
Not all Oolong is the same, and while some are very light and delicate, this is not that! This was a warm, full bodied, nutty tea which is closer to the black side than the green side, which is how I prefer my Oolongs. (Posted on 1/3/2018)
Great Dao Hung Pao for priceReview by Reena
I've sampled several different versions of this tea, while there are some better, they are not THAT much better and MUCH more expensive. This is like one of the wines that would be rated 89, very drinkable and it has those notes of minerals that I like. (Posted on 5/8/2016)
