Big Red Robe | Oolong Tea
Description: A hybrid of North and South Fujian teas, this roasted oolong is a blend of 5 cultivars. The sweet sesame oil and charred chocolate flavor sharpens into a charcoal-like, mineral mouthfeel.
This tea was made by Mr. Tang Shuang Jiang and is a blend of teas from Jian Ou County (Jian Ou is next to Wuyi, a traditional rock oolong area) and Anxi County. Mr. Tang has a classmate in Jin Ou who makes Shui Xian, Mei Zan, Qi Lan, and Rou Gui teas. He took all four of these finished teas back to Anxi to blend with Ti Kwan Yin. He then roasted the leaves to create this traditional Big Red Robe flavor profile.
