About

Wuyi Mountain Da Hong Pao (Big Red Robe) | 武夷山大紅袍

Da Hong Pao (Big Red Robe), one of the famous “rock tea” (Yan Cha) from the Wu Yi Mountains found in the province of Fujian. Recognized by UNESCO as part of the world’s natural and cultural heritage, the landscape of the mountain offers unique geographical and climatic conditions for this special tea with unique mineral and rocky characteristics. The tea is produced by hand and is then roasted for many hours slowly over real charcoal fires. This adds a warmth, smoothness and nutty depth to the tea.

According to legend, a certain tea cured the the mother of a Ming Dynasty emperor of an illness, and that emperor sent great red robes to clothe the four bushes from which that tea originated. Three of these original bushes, growing on a rock on Mount Wuyi, reportedly date back to the Song Dynasty in terms of age and still survive today.

大紅袍,是來自福建武夷山著名岩茶”之一。武夷山被聯合國教科文組織列為世界文化與自然雙遺產,具有獨特礦物和岩石特徵,為茶樹提供了獨特的地理和氣候條件。茶葉先由手工製作,然後在木炭火上慢慢烤制數小時,令大紅袍茶葉增加了飽和、烘培、順滑和堅果的風味。

傳說中,某種茶葉治好了明朝皇帝母親的病,皇帝派人給這四棵茶樹穿上了大紅袍。這些在武夷山岩石上生長的其中三株原始灌木,據說年齡可以追溯到宋代,至今仍存在在武夷山上。
