Da Hong Pao (Big Red Robe) is a heavily oxidized, dark oolong tea. The real, original Da Hong Pao is hardly existed anymore because there are barely any of the original tea tree left. If any vendors told you that they have the real 100% pure Da Hong Pao, you should be extra cautious.
Our Da Hong Pao is a blend of the old tree Hua Xiang Shui Xian, Rou Gui, Qi Lan, and Qi Dan. Qi Dan is the pure Da Hong Pao cut from the original mother tree of Da Hong Pao. Mostly use Qi Dan in this blend because it has an incredible amount of energy. Qi Lan is added for the aroma; sweet, floral and rocky aroma. Rou Gui is added for the sweet, spice, and cinnamon aroma. And finally, Hua Xiang Shui Xian is added for the floral, fresh aroma. Four amazing cultivars blend into an amazing Da Hong Pao. No other Da Hong Pao blends can have the complexity of this Da Hong Pao. A pure enjoyment tea to have at any time.
