Da Hong Pao Mr. Wu

Big Red Robe
Product code: CSTW-5

Legendary wulong from the Wuyi mountains of Fujian, it is the most famous of the "rock teas", as they are called. Delicately twisted whole leaves are lightly roasted for a rich full liquor.

Its woody aromatic character is expertly enhanced by rich notes of pecans, cocoa and fruits (gooseberry).

The experience is deep, leaving a long after-impression in the mouth, delicately tart and sweet - reminiscent of caramel.
