Commercial Description

Da Hong Pao olarak da bilinen Big Red Robe, oolong çayları ile bilinen Wu Yi dağlarından gelen en özel oolong çayıdır. Çok yüksek derecede oksidize edildiğinden siyah çaya oldukça yakındır. Rahatlıkla birkaç kez demleyebileceğiniz Da Hong Pao oldukça zengin bir karamel-çikolata tadı sunmakta olup, demlendiğinde koyu kahverengi bir renk almaktadır.

There are notes of coal, honey, orchids, a tiny touch of cocoa, and a finish of yeasty bread. I absolutely love teas that have a smokey or empyreumatic (if you want to impress your friends) aroma, to me they are one of the most comforting aromas you can get.

The first steep puts me in a happy place, it is one of the big differences between curly leaf and rolled leaf oolongs, their first steep usually has a much stronger presence, even if you do not always get as many steeps. The mouth feel is very smooth, it starts off with an intense coal taste and that turns into a faint coal taste that will last through until the end. After the initial coal-splosion (totally a word now) there is a creamy honey taste and a strong, almost perfume like orchid taste. The finish has a hint of cocoa that mixes with coal into the aftertaste.
