Big Red Robe is one of the famous 4 Wuyi bushes from Mount Wuyi in the Fujian province of China. It has been given the "King of all teas" during the Qing Dynasty.
Big Red Robe, also known as, Da Hong Pao in Mandarin, has been oxidized for a sweet and aromatic treat.The first infusion creates a pleasant orange brew with a unique fruity, slightly smoky, sweet aroma. The taste is rich and smooth emitting a subtle fruity aftertaste. An aromatic, sweet flavor lingers on the tongue well after the last sip. The appearance of its tea leaves in dry leaf form onsists of dark, mostly erect tea leaves yielding a subtle fruity aroma and a hint of chocolate fragrance. It is a perfect choice for any new Wuyi oolong drinker.
Legend of Big Red Robe
A scholar in the Ming Dynasty who resided near where these tea bushes were planted, and being too poor to buy his own tea, would pluck leaves from these bushes to make his own. After gaining scholar honours in the Imperial Examination, the scholar rode home in glory, wearing a red robe that signifies his Imperial Scholar status. In gratitude to the tea bushes, he draphed his red robe on them and thus the tea was named.
Another legend has it that during the era of the Tang dynasty, the Emperor's mother was brought back to health from a serious illness by this tea, as evidence of which the Emperor had the four original tea bushes covered in a large red robe. These bushes still grow on Mount Wuyi and are appropriately honoured.
