About Da Hong Pao

Da hong pao (大红袍), meaning big red robe (which the tea is sometimes called) is a tea from the Wuyi mountains in Fujian, China. The tea is sometimes called red hood, large red robe, great red cloak, or other similar variants owing to differences in translation.

This tea is sometimes classified as a black tea (in Chinese, called red tea), but is usually classified as an oolong. Regardless of how it is classified, the leaf and brewed tea are both dark in color, and the tea has many characteristics in common with other Wuyi oolongs.
