big red robeThe Big Red Robe (Da Hong Pao) is a darkly oxidized oolong tea from oolong’s birthplace, the Wuyi Mountains of China’s Fujian Province.  Upfront notes of molasses & apricot with a lingering and mouthwatering finish.

This tea got its name from a Buddhist Monk who while traveling a great distance to take an important exam, stopped to make tea from wild bushes growing near the mountain path. Revived, he received the highest test score and was given a silk rob.  Upon his return trip, he honored the tea bush by placing the red robe on it.
