Da Hong Pao (Big Red Robe) - Medium Smoked
Please describe how you are preparing the tea (brew times, water temperature, type of teapot, etc): 100 degree Celsius water with Yi-Xing teapot
What did you taste on the First Brew?: Light smoky taste with very good cliff tea rocky flavour
What did you taste on the Second Brew?: Smoky taste becomes slightly stronger with more tea fragrance released
What did you taste on the Third Brew?: Smoky taste remains similar to the second brew with the rocky flavour becomes stronger
Additional Comments: This type of tea is full of energy, I could always feel my body warms up really quickly after drinking this. The smoky taste is not very strong so it is suitable for people who enjoy lightly roasted tea. The quality of this cliff tea is also very impressive, one can easily tell from the leaf and its strong rocky flavour which is a signature taste of a good quality cliff tea.
