Da Hong Pao Mr Wu

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. 

Dong Ding Competition 1st Grade | Collection Box

This First Class, award-winning wulong is one of the last one hundred teas in its category from the 6000 lots presented this year at the Luku contest. As required by the competition, the leaves are tightly rolled with the typical colours of the region's traditional roasting. A rich and oily liquor presents its aromatic complexity while oscillating between the warmness of bark and grilled rice and the exotic notes of fruit and flowers . A zesty character blends harmoniously with its slightly resinous finish. A Grand Cru, delicious from start to finish.
