From Harney & Sons

The Chinese have made rock tea or yancha in the Wuyi Mountains of northwestern Fujian Province for over 150 years. This tea is a descendant of the 3 original tea plants that made Big Red Robe (aka Da Hong Pao). Thus it is a darker twisted oolong. This tea is lighter than our Wuyi Da Hong Pao.

Almost forgot to review this one. Oops. Nothing special though, it did say one of the main taste notes is onion, happy to say I didn’t get that note. Tended to be really light on flavor so I really went through this one quickly. Wouldn’t buy it again

Uodate- I got the onion wrong. Its not supposed to be onion notes but grilled peaches. I didnt grt that in my tasting though, might have to try another companies

How disappointing! I have never heard if Da Hong Pao having onion nites and I would be truly dismayed if it did. Big Red Robe should be an EVENT.

Onion? Odd.
