I'm still in love with Rare Lapsang Souchong, but Da Hong Pao Oolong is a very nice change of pace. Not at all smokey, but very nicely malty and distinct.
To me, only the first and second infusions were tasty. I've found most Iron Goddess of Mercy oolongs to taste better, for three infusions, for lower prices than did this Da Hong Pao Oolong. So sorry my experience was not better.
Da Hong Pao
I really enjoy this tea. The flavor is full ,round and smooth. It has the essence of sandalwood and a hint of apricot my favorite stone fruit. The color is a warm brown which matches the flavor. I use it as a treat first thing in the morning on special days like Sunday. My most favorite tea to date is Rou Gui because of it's full round cinnamon like flavor and Da Hong Pau comes the closest to Rou Gui which is very hard to find and comes from the same region as Da Hong Pau.
An amazing tea
This tea has a wonderful depth of flavor. I don’t quite know how to say it, it is like a variety of flavors in every sip, each distinct yet somehow all one. I've been trying the various Chinese teas to see what I like, and this one has moved to the top of my list.
I've been given this tea by my friend for Christmas few years ago and it's that kind of tea I feel having rather occasionally (this might apply only to me tho as I prefer light floral teas) It has trully unique rich body and smoky taste notes as well as caramel. For anyone enjoying this type of tea Rare Tea Co is the one to choose. Tins are beautiful too and I am lucky to got couple of different ones before they changed design which is 'too loud' for my taste. But isn't it about the content? ;)
