Big Red Robe (Oolong)
Big Red Robe is one of the great Wuyi Teas, and one of our favourites. Produced from the Wuyi Qidan cultivar and picked in mid-April, carefully sun withered before charcoal roasting, resulting in its wonderful taste and aroma. Our Big Red Robe has been medium roasted giving it a rich mellow flavour with hints of cocoa, and a sweet almost floral aftertaste.
