BIG RED ROBE OOLONG TEA

$ 17.00

Description

Big Red Robe, also known as Da Hong Pao, is one of the world's most famous oolongs. Grown and harvested on the remote Wuyi Mountain cliffs, it is a rare treasure to savor. Big Red Robe's big, long, dark leaves are gently twisted and profusely aromatic, due to a light charcoal roasting. Their full fragrances range from nutty and toasty to mineral, woodsy and fruity. The brew's aroma is assertive and rich, with notes of charred grilling planks and stewed apples. Its dark caramel liquor is complexly woodsy. Notes of dried wood, charred wood, fallen leaves and cracked walnut shells are backed with malt, an apricot-citrus tone, light astringency and the distinctive spiced wood note of fine Japanese incense. The big flavor of its rounded, astringent finish fades slowly. Later infusions are sweeter and fruitier than the first. This dark, heavily oxidized Wuyi oolong is a natural accompaniment for foods like cedar-plank-grilled tilapia, grilled peaches misted with balsamic vinegar, pecan pie drizzled with warm cream, or poached pears with caramelized nuts.

Your tea is hand packed in a resealable pouch at no additional charge. For an additional $5 you can select our new Black Triangle Signature Canister.

Unfurls the largest leaves I've ever seen in a tea of any kind. True earthy oolong flavor, with floral notes that add a hint of sweetness. Leaves can easily be steeped twice, maybe three times. I liked it.
