    Size

    A medium roast Yancha from Qin Shi in the Wuyi Mountains. Harvested in May 2018 from tea plants that are now about 40 years old, this tea carries a mellow, fruity flavour with blackcurrant notes and a rich roasted aftertaste. Da Hong Pao is one of China’s most famous teas.

    Legend has it that this tea cured the mother of a Ming dynasty emperor from an illness, so he sent red robes to protect the bushes from which it originated.
