#Crow31Days | Day 9at The Cultured Cup
The 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.
