The most revered amongst all Wuyi oolongs, Da Hongpao (translate: Big Red Cloak) from the pure pedigree grown in better horticultural environment mean significant difference and are most sought after. Tea Hong’s Red Cloak Grande is an extremely limited production (10 kg/year) harvested from two second generation noble breed that are over 100 yrs old in the heights of Wuyi. Masterfully processed to best deliver the taste this name represents.
Deep, sweet, warm, complex aroma hinting cinnamon, sweet roots, apple sauce with an optimally fired toasty cereal overtone. Accents of moss and earthiness that are typical of high grown oolong characters. Dark amber stout infusion rounded with good malty sweetness in a silky texture. Slight citrus accents and immediate, tinkling spicy, bittersweet aftertaste.
Finer and safer quality Longjing from the genuine origin has become so high price that there is a high demand for alternatives. Tea Hong’s Longjing Pure is produced deep in the high mountains in a national conservation area away from pollution. Same latitude as Hangzhou, but higher up in altitude. Even more ideal for green tea. Not only does it answer the market need but can also satisfy the connoisseur’s high requirement for taste authenticity. Tea Hong’s Longjing Pure. Purely Longjing.
The natural bouquet of an oolong comes as an integral part of the taste profile, such as that of our Tieguanyin Light. Not only is this coherent “oneness” a factor we tea purists cherish for purity’s sake, but is also perhaps a freshness we all need amongst the overdose of artificiality in modern life. Our Tieguanyin differs from others by being more faithful to the traditional style — less green but more fermented. This is reflected in its relatively more neutral TCM character, a silkier texture and a softer, rounder body.
Song pedigree tea cultivar Huangzhi Xiang distinguishes itself from others of the same name not only by its living ancestor that has been carbon-dated back to the 13th century (late Song), but also by the elegantly complex taste and aroma of the tea it yields. That is why it is the most revered of all Phoenix oolong in its own origin and at the nearby Gongfu Tea Capital of the World — Chaozhou.

No this is not the beer but 100% pure oolong. Wuyi classic oolongs in general distinguish themselves from other oolongs with a stout, rather immediate and powerful impact. Tea Hong’s Cream Stout differs from the crowd with a soft creamy finish and a light tone of cream that is developed naturally in the tealeaves themselves. This is possible only with a new pedigree of tea cultivar, Aijiao Wulong. We believe you’ll like the oolong much better than the beer, as we do.
