Wuyi Oolong Da Hong Pao Cha Bin, 2015 is pressed into a cake, which is unusual since most Da Hong Paos are usually loose teas. It’s aroma isn’t as strong and rich in comparison to loose DHP, it includes cookies, spice, caramel and freshly baked bread. The taste isn’t as rich as the classic DHP, but sweet, slightly smoky and fiery. It isn’t tart or astringent, the aftertaste is sweet. Soothing and relaxing.
It’s best to treat Da Hong Pao Cha Bin like a Shu Puerh rather than an Oolong, best brewed using water close to boiling temperature: 90-95°C. It is not your classic Da Hong Pao and not everyone will like its taste.
