Da Hong Pao is the king of the Famous Five Rock Teas in the Wu Yi Mountain of China. This tea is legendary. Records of its existence date as far back as the early 18th century (Dao Guang Era). During Qing Dynasty, Da Hong Pao was entitled "King of Tea". In 1998, the Chinese government put it up for sale for the first time and was sold to a group of auctioneers for almost $900,000.

"Te Ji" means special grade.

Other names:

Special Grade Big Red Robe


Full bodied tea with sweet floral aroma. The first sip has a passing black coffee taste that is quickly replaced by a sweet, pleasant floral aftertaste that lingers in your mouth.


Dark and slightly curled tea leaves.


Wu Yi Shan, Fujian Province, China

Harvest Period:

Spring 2015

How to identify the quality of Da Hong Pao?

Brewing Guide

1. Rinse tea cup and teapot with hot water.

2. Fill the teapot 1/2 to 3/4 full with tea leaves, or 3 grams of tea leaves for every 150ml of water if you are not using purple clay. Steep tea leaves in hot water at 95°c (207°F) to 100°c (212°F) for 1 minute for the first and second brewing.

3. Gradually increase steeping time and temperature for subsequent brewing.

* We suggest you can purple clay or porcelain tea ware.

excellent wuyi yan cha, very unique, with strong chocolate notes and far more roasted than the average wuyi tea, highly recommended.

This is STRONG! Dont brew for more than 5 seconds or youll be drinking ash water! Anyway, after drinking it a few times, youll start appreciating its special character. But, at first, I have to admit, I felt like I was being ripped off.

This is exactly what it says. Earthy, malty chocolaty, coffee goodness. I cant give it 5 considering the other Da Hong Pao they have, but this is a great value.

This is a something of a guilty pleasure. When water first hits these leaves, it smells like you have made a pot of split pea and ham soup. Bacon in a Xiying. In the cup, the aroma is more complex, with smoke, herbs and a faint gamey smell that reminds me of something in the wind at the zoo. The taste is complex, but, again, mostly herbs and smoke, but with a sweet finish that reminds you about the fruit under the smoke. Later infusions (3+) taste more like fine tobacco to me, with a nice lift as well. Come to think of it, there is tobacco pleasure here without the guilt. Not bad at all.

I love this tea! It comes, of course to its full right only if you make it kung fu-style, but its a great tea anyway you make it. Deep and broad taste, cocoa and coffee...

This tea is jet black and has a highly roasted quality - almost sooty. I think this is where the coffee references come from. Having said that the taste is still very smooth and rounded. Its a rich Oolong for sure. The flavours are very well balanced. All DHPs will taste different of course but I suspect this one would be described as "different" owing to its dark roasted character. Perhaps this is the "traditional" aspect (?). It really does taste good though and I cant see anyone being disappointed with this tea. I love it and will brew it when trying to convert friends to the "Oolong way". This is the 4th type of DHP I have tried and I think its my favourite - especially given the price!

After quickly rising the leaves and discarding this brew, I then make the first and subsequent infusions. i find the tea very smooth with mainly roasted notes and hints of sweetness, without any bitterness at all. DHPs are made from special tea leaves that are usually 80 percent oxidized. DHPs should be dark, brooding, smooth, and mysterious teas. For the price, I recommend this tea if you would like to be introduced to DHPs. I find this is a great tea to make iced and bring in a water bottle to the gym or drink when on the go. Oolong tea is renowned for weight-loss, so this is also a great work-out tea. Next time, I will probably splurge and purchase the higher grade DHP, since I liked my first introduction to this interesting tea.

Good tea. I tend to like the heavily roasted stuff. Does not have quite as much flavor as I hoped, but is very pleasant. If you are willing to pay about 25% more than this for a Wuyi, you can find some that will change your life.

I usually dont drink black tea, so this - or some other oolong rock tea - has become a morning staple. Good tea, just finished my tea session and now i got more energy to do my work. After 5 infusion it has very good taste.

Its got a characteristic "side-taste" which I dont like so much; prefer the other Da Hong Paos ...
