Story About Da Hong Pao Tea
Dà Hóng Páo is an important Wuyi Oolong tea.
According to legend, the tea was named after a gift given to the trees from an emperor. During the Ming Dynasty,
an emperor's mother was gravely ill. She drank the Tea and immediately felt better and was soon cured. The
emperor in gratitude for the tea sent large amounts of rare red cloth to cover the trees during winter to insure that
they did not die from the cold. The locals then started to call the tree Big Red Robe Tea because of the red cloth.
More information about Da Hong Pao Tea:
Dahongpao is part of the Wuyi Cliff Tea family, a group of Oolong teas collectively ranks in China’s top ten teas.
Wuyi Mountain is in Fujian Province, a region famous for its superior Oolong tea. As the name Wuyi Cliff Tea
suggests, the tea grows in the cliffs of Wuyi Mountain.
Wuyi Mountain is about 650 meters above sea level. Creeks run through the rocks and cliffs, making it a unique yet
accommodating breeding ground for tea. There have been a lot of legends surrounding Dahongpao, partly due to
the almost ethereal environment that it grows in. In the cliffs still exist 4 to 6 “mother trees”, i.e. the oldest living
Dahongpao trees planted almost 400 years ago. Only a few kilos of tea are harvested from these trees every year,
fetching million Renminbi price tags at auctions. The China National Museum also keeps part of the produce to
preserve the heritage.
