Da Hong Pao, the most popular Wuyi rock tea direct from its origin Wuyishan, Fujian. This authentic oolong has the characteristic 'rock' flavor from the mineral rich hills of the protected Wuyishan nature reserve.

You can steep Da Hong Pao up to 12 times when using Gong fu method. For the fourth brew and after, adjust the steeping time accordingly at each step. Use the experience of the previous steeps to determine the brewing time. If the previous brew was too light, then try increasing the steeping time more. If the previous brew was too strong, then try to steep the next brew shorter. Notice the taste and aroma evolving at each step, which makes drinking this tea so pleasurable.
