Da Hong Pao spring 2013

Sort of Tea: Da Hong Pao

Origin: Wuyishan Mountains, Fujian Province, China

Content according to the Chinese classification: elite oolong tea

Da Hong Pao – the emperor or rock teas, comes from the ravine of Wuyishan Mountains, where there still exist the four ancient species of tea trees. The name of the tree originates from an age-old legend. According to the legend, the tea had healed the empress from a severe disease, and as a sign of the highest honor, the emperor ordered to throw his embroidered ceremonial robe over the tea bush. Da Hun Pao grows in the midst of rocky ravines under the shroud of their misty haze. After picking, selected with special care curved tea leaves are then processed on the open fire. The large curved tea leaves, having kept the daintiness of their natural shape, are glossy brownish-black with tints of green. The tea’s golden-amber infusion features a deep and long-lasting aroma as well as an exceptionally strong taste, which ends in a lingering floral and fruity aftertaste and an interesting hint of slight sweet with notes of baking.

Rou Gui Xiang Dan Cong («Cinnamon»), Wudang Dan Cong («Mount Wudang Tea»).Feng Huang Dan Cong is the tea of “four unsurpassed perfections”. They are: the dark rich color of the tea’s dainty leaves, crystal clarity of its golden-orange infusion, its mild mature taste carrying pure freshness and notes of honey, as well as its unique bouquet of floral fragrances.

Stories&sayings

Lao Tze “TaoDeChing “


35. Peace

If you offer music and food
Strangers may stop with you;
But if you accord with the Way
All the people of the world will keep you
In safety, health, community, and peace.

The Way lacks art and flavour;
It can neither be seen nor heard,
But its benefit cannot be exhausted.

Stories&sayings

Lao Tze “TaoDeChing “


36. Opposition

To reduce someone's influence, first expand it;
To reduce someone's force, first increase it;
To overthrow someone, first exalt them;
To take from someone, first give to them.

This is the subtlety by which the weak overcome the strong:
Fish should not leave their depths,
And swords should not leave their scabbards.
