Also known as Da Hong Pao or "big red robe" this rock oolong from the Wuyi Mountains of Fujian province is a truly unique dark oolong. It is said that the mother of the Emperor in the Ming Dynasty was very ill but after drinking this tea was cured, the Emperor then sent big red robes to clothe the tea bushes as a sign of admiration.
Rock Oolong has a very unique flavour and hints at a black tea while still being considered an Oolong. It has heavily oxidized to around 75-80% and exudes notes of peach, honey and wet stone.
