If you there's such thing as a 'legendary tea' then it must be Da Hong Pao (Big Red Robe). This tea's name is based on legend in which a tea made from bushes in Wuyishan healed the ailing mother of the emperor. The emperor ordered servants to visit the bushes every year wearing red robes. To honor the tea bushes, the red robes were wrapped around them.

Our Da Hong Pao is characterised by an aromatic woody roast. It's naturally sweet and has this mineral flavour thats unique to Wuyishan.

This Big Red Robe tea is classified as Ban Yan (半岩), meaning that the tea leaves are originated from a tea garden in the vicinity of the Wuyishan Nature Reserve.

Looking to get into oolong tea? Our Da Hong Pao is the first tea you should taste.

Our design work is inspired by the artwork “Along the River During the Qingming Festival” by the Zhang Zeduan in the Song Dynasty. Instead of displaying the daily lives of people in the capital of China (as the original artwork), we display the tea making process of farmers through the same bird’s eye perspective.

When examining our packaging design in detail, tea enthusiasts will observe the tea making process, featuring tea farmers picking, drying, rolling, and frying tea leaves. The tea is then tasted in a pavilion and transported by horses along the ‘ancient tea road’.

Together, the traditional Chinese landscape and tea making theme, symbolise heritage, tradition, and respect for hard work of tea farmers.
