Fun Fact: Da Hong Pao (also known as Big Red Robe tea) comes from the legend of a Buddhist monk who became exhausted while traveling to take a life-changing exam. Stopping on a mountain path, he prepared tea from the bushes growing out of the rocks. Refreshed, he completed the journey and received the top test score as well as a red silk robe. While returning home, he honored the tea plants by covering them with the red robe.
