Weight: 160 gram (5.6 oz)
Type: Wuyi Rock Oolong - Da Hong Pao - premium grade
Production area: Wuyi Mountain, Fujian Province

Grown in the Wuyi National Scenic Area, this tea is an Authentic Da Hong Pao (Big Red Robe) Rock Oolong. This amazingly flavorful tea possesses all the flavors and characteristic of an authentic Wuyi Oolong. It is thick, aromatic, toasty, and viscous. During processing, some of leaves were crushed. The tea master sorted the crushed leaves and pressed them into a 160g chocolate bar-like block. Each block contains eighteen detachable 8.5g pieces packaged neatly in a kraft box. Break off a piece of the tea, place it in a cup, pour hot water into it and enjoy. No measuring of tea leaves is required and no more messy tea leaves scattered on the kitchen counter. It is a great tea for busy people on the go.

for 160 grams (5.6 oz)

Break off a piece (10g) from the block, place it in a tea filter and disperse both into a 8 oz cup. Pour hot water (195 degree F) into the cup and wait a few seconds for the tea leaves to separate. Lift the tea filter and discard the water as this is just the rinse. Place the tea filter back into the cup and pour hot water into it again. Steep the leaves for 1 minute. Then remove the tea filter and enjoy the tea. For a second cup of tea, place the tea filter containing the same tea leaves into the cup and pour hot water in it. Steep the leaves for 2 minutes, remove the filter and drink. Repeat the process with increasing steeping time for each successive steeping until the flavor has been derived from the leaves.

If brewing using a Gaiwan or Yixing tea pot, break off half a piece from the block and place it in the preheated Gaiwan or tea pot. Pour hot water in the Gaiwan or tea pot, wait a few seconds and discard the water. Follow the suggested steeping times below.

Da Hong Pao Oolong Block 160g

Convenient and True to Flavor Profile
I'm pretty happy with this little breakaway. It's easy to brew, and has a flavor profile typical of this type of tea. The oxidation and roast are a tad on the heavy side, which is a plus for people like me who enjoy darker flavors.

For my all morning brew, 1/2 a brick is all I need. I rinse
twice (for about 20 seconds each), then brew in an infuser jar - refilling all morning. While the flavor lasts, I don't note a lot of texture.

new da hong pao oolong
this new batch is even better! stronger aroma, fuller, fresher taste!
very pleased!
before becoming a ripe puerh drinker almost exclusively, I drank oolong all the time. I've tried and enjoyed many oolongs but never did come across anything like the dark oolong I had in Taipei 30 years ago...until this!
