Organic Da Hong Pao Oolong
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.
The tea was very good and tasty. And from a friendly company. They take the time to write a personal ty postcard. Awesome company.
Smooth and delicious. Also received a selection of small tins, shared half with very appreciatively friends to introduce them to Little Red Cup. Keeping the rest !
My favorite oolong tea!
