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 more information.

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!

Awesome Da Hong Pao

Asked for a sample, then ordered a tin, now a pound. Yes, I really like this tea and I've been drinking it every morning. Should help me get through the winter.

Very nice teas!

I’m enjoying the wuyuan black tea very much! The Lapsang Suchong was also very smooth with good smoky aroma. Have not had a chance to try my smaller tin of mixed teas but am excited!
