Da Hong Pao - Wuyi Oolong Tea
This tea's dry leaves are the long and twisted shape and dark greenish red-brown color characteristic of traditional, heavy roast Wu Yi Yan Cha. The fragrance of the dry leaves is predominantly of dried fruit and roasted barley...gentle but rich. The flavor of the moderately thick reddish-amber infusion has bittersweet, woody and toasted barley or other sweet grain flavors balancing nicely with interesting fruity elements. The tea flavor is definitely assertive, and the aftertaste is lingering, profoundly woody-sweet and builds steadily in the mouth over a series of infusions.
