Da Hong Pao ("Big Red Robe") is an important Wuyi Oolong tea. According to legend, the mother of a Ming Dynasty emperor was cured of an illness by a certain tea, and that emperor sent great red robes to clothe the four bushes from which that tea originated. Three of these original bushes, growing on a rock on Mount Wuyi and reportedly dates back to the Song Dynasty, still survive today and are highly venerated. At one point, less than one kilogram of tea was harvested from these plants each year, of which a portion was retained by the Chinese government. In 2005, Da Hong Pao can sell for 30,000 US dollars per kilogram.
years, a number of companies have invested in preserving the interest in this
tea and other so-called "artisan" teas, which typically are of very
high quality and have rich histories as is true with Da Hong Pao. These have an
initially high cost of production (and typically are only considered authentic
when grown in their place of origin), but, as they have quickly become popular
in Western countries, prized selections of the tea are available each year, with
quality being consistent due to the increased popularity of tea.
