Fun Fact: Although this tea is similar in flavor to a Da Hong Pao tea (also known as a Big Red Robe tea), this is not a Da Hong Pao, which is among the most expensive teas on the planet. The name 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 his red robe.
