Da Hong Pao, translated into English as “Big Red Robe”, is one of the most famous oolongs from the Wuyi mountains in Fujian. Legend has it that these tea bushes received the name after an Emperor draped his red robe over them in thanks for curing his mother. This is an elegant, full-bodied tea which goes down smoothly and leaves a sweet aftertaste.

In a small teapot, steep for 30 seconds if you like your tea quite light and up to 1 minute if you prefer something stronger. The bigger your teapot, the longer the steeping time.
In a normal sized mug (approximately 250ml), steeping time should be between 2 to 3 minutes.
If you brew your tea in a convenience cup, do not throw the leaves away after 1 round. Good tea leaves are good for 3 rounds. You may want to steep the leaves slightly longer with each subsequent round.
