Big Red Robe (Da Hong Pao) is a rare Oolong tea that flourishes at an elevation of over 7000 feet in the majestic Wuyi Mountain in China. Its subtropical weather, unique climate, and rare soil makeup has spawned this prized tea for decades. Legend has it that an emperor clothed the tea trees that produced this Oolong with a beautiful red robe because it once cured his mother from illness, hence the name, Big Red Robe. This high grade Oolong is handmade, based on ancient tradition, with tender leaves roasted over charcoal to create a smoky but sweet and caramelized flavor.
