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.

    Very rich, like a fine wine!

    Ok, the wine reference might be a stretch for some of you. But if you've tasted smooth, very robust wines, you'll know what I mean. Before this Oolong, I was hooked on Taiwanese high mountain teas (purchased in Taiwan) but this takes the top spot, although they are quite different. I'm overly sensitive to bitter tastes and this has none and has an incredibly deep, rich flavor. Yum.

    Absolute Perfection!

    This oolong is one of my constant go-to choices for a morning gong-fu session. It's the slightest bit bitter, and a touch nutty, and delightfully roasted. Pairs perfectly with something sweet, or is soothing all on its own when you want something without high/grassy notes. 10/10 highly recommend.
