Da Hong Pao is one of the most famous teas found on the rocky slopes of the Wuyi mountain in Fujian province. Translated as ‘Grand Scarlet Robe’, it is a much celebrated tea in China. This tea is also known as “yancha” or “cliff tea”, defined by a characteristic mineral rich flavour. It is full-bodied, has a robust flavour with complex flavour notes and a long, lingering finish.
Our Da Hong Pao Prestige has a lovely aroma, as well as a long-lasting, sweet aftertaste and can retain its flavour for many steepings. This Oolong tea also helps to aid in digestion and helps blood circulation.

Useful Tips You Need
In a small teapot, steep for 30 seconds if you like your tea quite light and up to 1 minute if you prefer something stronger. The bigger your teapot, the longer the steeping time.
In a normal sized mug (approximately 250ml), steeping time should be between 2 to 3 minutes.
If you brew your tea in a convenience cup, do not throw the leaves away after 1 round. Good tea leaves are good for 3 rounds. You may want to steep the leaves slightly longer with each subsequent round.
Brewing Temperature: 90⁰C
