wuyi ensemble

Wuyi Ensemble, known as Da Hong Pao or Wuyi rock tea, is a roasted oolong tea from the Wuyi mountains in Fujian province, China. The high fire treatment gives Wuyi oolong its specific smoky and minerally character. This is a beautifully balanced and complex tea with a deep, yet faint, ripe fruitiness in the background. The flavour is slightly honey-floral and nutty, with hints of white sesame, cinnamon and sweetened burdock root. There is a lingering sweet caramel aftertaste due to the high fire roasting technique. Wuyi Ensemble oolong is warming and satisfying. Being a good digestive tea it goes well with food or sweets. It is perfect for multiple infusions so you can tease out many layers of intriguing flavour.

fresh from origin

The WuYi Mountains are found in the north-western part of the Fujian province of China. They are a collection of jagged-edged peaks, nearly always blanketed in clouds and fog. It is here, between the rocks, where one of China's more famous teas is cultivated. WuYi 'rock' oolongs grow defiantly in the gaps of the mountain boulders. These teas are highly prised for their 'yan yun' or 'rock taste', and only the real WuYi teas grown from these rocks - not teas from nearby hills or flatter landscapes - will have that mineral flavour. A Royal Tea Garden was established here as early as the Yuan Dynasty, with each harvest offered in tribute to the Emperor.
