Da Hong Pao or “Big Red Robe” is a tea named for symbolic robes of Royalty given to a simple farmer for saving the life of an Empress. It’s a great story and we encourage you to look it up. It’s so sought after in China and elsewhere that imposters flood the market. Our tea is guaranteed authentic. While the Mother plants are the realm of Presidents and Governments, the tea in this bag is a direct clone in the immediate area grown in a National Scenic Area in the trade-mark rocky soil.
It’s grown by the Chen Family who inherited 13 acres of this precious land from their Grandfather directly within the National protected area. This tea is not grown plantation style in neat rows like many imposters farther outside but rather these plants grow in spacious groves, ranging in age up to more than 100 years old. This location is protected by the government.
Chocolate, raisins, minerals with a very soft profile.
Spring 2014. This tea is best from 3-8 years old according to the farmer.
There is not that much to go around so we only sell this tea by the single oz.
