big red robe oolong
I have been enjoying oolong tea grown in the fujian province and grown on mount wuyi for many years. My nephew who visits Beijing,China frequently, introduced me to oolong tea. I have read and enjoyed the story about how the name of this fantastic tea, Da Hong Pao came about. Thomas was very helpful to me on my very first purchase of this renowned tea. The heathful benefits of this tea is very important to me, Thank you.

Oolongs have become my favorite teas and this is one that I enjoy with some regularity. I put it in a class of teas that (for lack of better terminology) I label as "smokey" flavored. There are three Oolongs that I classify this way, Big Red Robe, Hairy Crab, and Wuyi Rock. This one, Big Red Robe, seems to me to fall in the middle range of the "smokiness." While this is not a flavor I go to every day, it is a variety that I consistently cycle into my morning teas. An excellent tea to include in the mix of teas one enjoys.

Big Red Robe
This has to be my favorite of all teas. It has a wonderful full flavor and comforting aroma, ( I like it extra strong) and strange to me, an oolong that finishes with a red color almost like a pekoe. On a cold and blustery day I love coming in and reaching for my Red Robe.

One of my favorite teas
I like my teas in pure form, that is just the tea leaves with exception to the very bitter teas which I add a little lemon juice and stevia. This Big Red Robe tea is now one of my favorite tea along with Ginseng Oolong and the 5 year aged Pu-erh tea. These three are my current favorites which I drink daily but I think the Big Red Robe is the one I drink the most.

Aroma and taste is earthy and sweet; the beautiful brownish-red glow is a delight to the eye. Very enjoyable.

Just exactly as I had hoped. I can steep it more than once and it is just as sweet and fragrant as it is supposed to be.

Good basic DHP
Easily my favorite oolong, Da Hung Pao typically balances a pleasing smokiness and an appetizing green flavor. This is only a basic grade, but it's hard not to love the enticing combination of flavors; it's fine by itself, but works harmoniously with light food.

DELIGHTFUL IN EVERY WAY
When opening the pouch this tea gives off an aroma that announces delights to come. The taste and the aroma are followed by the beautiful glowing color of the liquid. Mine was brownish with red tones. Lovely to look at. I have never had a tea I did not like from Enjoy but this was remarkable to enjoy.

Upon opening the package it was in i got the smell of a sweet earthiness and when brewed it tasted just the same, earthy and a bit sweet. Very relaxing drink and something that should not be rushed through, most of the teas i have gotten from enjoyingtea.com i have been able to brew more then 5 times at about 30-45 seconds per infusion and each time the infusions taste better and better

Sweetest Da Hung Pao yet
After buying many so-called big red robe oolongs from various websites I still had not tasted what the hype was all about, especially being among the list of China's top ten. That all changed when I decided to give Da Hung Pao one more try. As soon as I made my first brew of this delightful tea gong fu style I knew this was the REAL Big Red Robe, especially from the sweetness in the aftertaste. Thanks again enjoyingtea for going that extra distance to acquire a TRUE example of a Chinese top ten!
