Da Hong Pao Tea Blocks (2013 vintage—spring harvest)

Weight: 150 gram (5.29 oz)
Type: Wuyi Rock Oolong - Da Hong Pao - premium grade
Production area: Wuyi Mountain, Fujian Province

The base material for this tea is the premium grade Da Hong Pao (Zheng Yan). During processing, some of leaves were crushed. The tea master sorted the crushed leaves and pressed them into a 150g chocolate bar-like block. Each block contains eighteen detachable 8.5g pieces packaged neatly in a red box. A tea drinker can simply break off a piece of the tea, place in a cup, pour hot water into it and enjoy. No measuring of tea leaves is required and no more messy tea leaves scattered on the kitchen counter. It is a great tea for busy people on the go.

During my tasting session in Wuyi Shan, I was amazed at how flavorful and durable this tea was. Hearty and full-bodied, it’s flavors sustained even after multiple steepings. Besides the great taste, its great value is also something I could not resist.

Brewing Instructions:
Break off a piece (8.5g) from the block, place it in a tea filter and disperse both into a 8 oz cup. Pour hot water (195 degree F) into the cup and wait a few seconds for the tea leaves to separate. Lift the tea filter and discard the water as this is just the rinse. Place the tea filter back into the cup and pour hot water into it again. Steep the leaves for 1 minute. Then remove the tea filter and enjoy the tea. For a second cup of tea, place the tea filter containing the same tea leaves into the cup and pour hot water in it. Steep the leaves for 2 minutes, remove the filter and drink. Repeat the process with increasing steeping time for each successive steeping until the flavor has been derived from the leaves.

If brewing using a Gaiwan or Yixing tea pot, break off a piece from the block and place it in the preheated Gaiwan or tea pot. Pour hot water in the Gaiwan or tea pot, wait a few seconds and discard the water. Follow the suggested steeping times below:
