Dahongpao is produced in Wuyishan and surrounding areas. Due to its famous name and high price, the tea has also been forged and produced in various provinces and exported in large quantities to Western markets outside of China.
Da Hong Pao
Da Hong Pao (Big Red Robe) – one of the best rock teas (yancha) straight from the cradle of all oolongs – Wu Yi Shan. Teas grow on the region’s numerous rocky cliffs, which, thanks to the local climate and stony soil, acquire special features that are later deepened by traditional processing.
Due to its unique properties and taste, Da Hong Pao is often referred to as the ‘King of Teas’. The color of the leaves is dark brown, often with a charcoal luster. The taste is balanced, the aroma is strong but still soft and pleasant and aftertaste long and sweet.
Dried jasmine flower (moli-hua), Jasminum Sambac. It comes from China, from where it spread further to Arabia and Persia and from there to Europe. It is an evergreen climbing plant or shrub, which grows to a height of 0.5-3 m. According to Chinese medicine, it improves eyesight and promotes smooth menstruation.
Fresh, only lightly dried Lycium chinense (goji, wolfberries), which has been used throughout China for centuries.
The shape is a bit like raisins, the taste of the fruit is sweet with a slightly sour aftertaste.
In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and among ordinary Chinese, goji is considered an indispensable food supplement. It is known for its benefits to the human body, both in young and old age. No negative side effects are known.
"White King"-Jasmine tea is produced in many provinces in China and is very popular (especially in the north of the country). The tea can be dried with jasmine and its odor can be absorbed, or the jasmine can be added directly to the tea. In this way, the tea acquires the aroma of jasmine, but still retains its original taste. Jasmine tea is light and pleasant. "White King" itself is a relatively high-quality green tea with rich fluff, but the addition of jasmine further improves its quality.
The white king we provide is mixed with fresh autumn jasmine in a ratio of 4:1 (gradually use 4 kg of jasmine per 1 kg of tea).
