Wuyi Da Hong Pao Cake

Wuyi Da Hong Pao Cake ~ Big Red Robe Oolong 100g  

Just like Pu-erh tea, the taste of Rock teas from Wuyi Mountains gets smoother with ageing. For a time now, tea cakes compressed from great Wuyi teas such as Da Hong Pao have been made by some individuals for personal consumption and sometimes as gifts. The process closely follows the process used to create a once-famous, Song Dynasty tribute tea cake called Long Tuan Feng Bing (Dragon Phoenix Tea Cake). The tightly compressed cake has Da Hong Pao in Chinese on the surface. This tea is ready for drinking now or it can be kept for further aging. Strong and full-bodied Da Hong Pao cake becomes more mellow and smoother as it ages.
