This Da Hong Pao comes from a younger generation of tea plants derived from the original Da Hong Pao trees. Nevertheless, it wonderfully represents the complexity and sweet mineral richness of a Da Hong Pao, yet for a smaller price. Skilful processing brings out the true value of the leaves, grown on slopes of Wuyi Mountains, China.
Origin: Wuyi, Fujian, China
Picking: Buds and closest leaves
Flavour: Rich and warming, toasty, notes of cardamom and cinnamon, baked apple. Texture is rich but smooth, long lasting caramel aftertaste. Enjoy the aroma of your cup after drinking the tea.
