    PRESTO XIAO HONG PAO, oolong tea 


  • PRESTO XIAO HONG PAO, oolong tea 

    Xiao Hong Pao (from Chinese - a small red cloak). This is the "younger sister" of the famous Chinese tea Da Hong Pao. The history of Da Hong Pao tea is shrouded in legends, according to which tea cured the emperor or his mother from serious diseases. When he learned of this tea, he told him to envelop those tea trees with his red cloak as a sign that it belonged only to a noble family. From here and the name of the tea - a large red cloak.  Even these days, 4 tea trees grow in the Wuyi Mountains, which have survived since the time of the Song dynasty (10-13 centuries). Tea from these trees is extremely expensive and not affordable for many, but with the increase in the need for Da Hong Pao tea, seedlings from the famous trees have been cloned and now it is possible to buy tea with similar properties, but not so luxurious. Wuyi mountain tea producers and these days make tea in traditional ways, when tea is fermented and dried for a long time and slowly and dried in an open but not hot fire. Da Hong Pao is a tea with a very intense aroma and taste, so not everyone enjoys it equally, and Xiao Hong Pao is a much softer version of it, a tea with a lighter, more elegant taste and aroma that can appeal to fans of both green and black tea and at the same time surprise with its exclusivity, which Oolong teas have. 

    Preparation: 12g (6 tsp.tbsp.) tea 1l boiled and cooled to 90⁰ water, wait 2-3 minutes. Tea can be poured several times with a shorter time, so you will discover new shades of taste)
