Organic Da Hong Pao Oolong

Origin: Hubei Province

Product Details

Our Organic Da Hong Pao (大红袍) is a marvelous mountain-grown rock tea from Enshi Prefecture in southwestern Hubei Province. Almost fully oxidized, it brews a deep mahogany red — with notes of cinnamon, plums, and caramel. Robust yet easy to brew, this loose leaf oolong tea has no bitter notes — only smooth, deep, rich, flavor.

This is a tea to be enjoyed on a regular basis, but also one to bring out for special occasions. It took us nearly ten years to find a great organic Da Hong Pao that was also Fair Trade. It is at once familiar and yet a cut above ordinary oolongs, a tea we are certain you will love.

Da Hong Pao is available by 2 oz tin or by the pound. Wondering if you'll like it? Try a taste! Tasting samples are available for all our teas and good for two cups.

The leaves, used in a cup or small teapot, may be reused several times. Indeed, some people pour off the first round of water after a short time, “washing” the leaves. 

Please see our Brewing Guidelines for how to how to brew oolong tea.

Love this Tea Company

Thanks for providing quality, ethical, natural tea. I wanted to replace coffee every morning with something less acidic. I’m grateful for my new tea routine, thanks to Little Red Cup!

Silky smooth

I cold brew this tea and it’s absolutely fantastic. I discovered more complex subtle notes came through with absolutely no astringency. It’s fantastic no matter how you brew it, but I love this tea cold brewed!
