Da Hong Pao of the highest grades

-

Several types of Da Hong Pao tea cultivated and produced by the respected family tea farms from the Wuyi mountains.

In ancient times, cliff tea from the Wuyi Mountains was the most appropriate gift for the Emperor. During the Yuan dynasty tea for the royal palace was delivered from the special garden located at one of the branches of Jiuquxi river. Ming era can be called “the golden age” of Wuyi teas as that was the time when they gained extreme popularity even outside the country for the ability to create a special mysterious atmosphere, to bring deep wisdom and knowledge, which seems to be heaven sent. Cliff tea Wu Yi Yan Cha, the first introduced to Europe sort, quickly became the essential part of any noble banquet.

Da Hog Pao is probably the most prized tea from this family, deserving its second name “the cliff tea emperor”. Its beautiful infusion is amber-colored with slight golden shades. Da Hong Pao is notable for a deep rich flavor representing northern asperity, with long aftertaste of fresh fruits and flowers.
