|This tea is very powerful. It is strong in aroma and taste and warms the body up very well. It can be brewed many times and leaves a very pleasant lingering aftertaste. Brewing this special Da Hong Pao is a great experience because the aroma is so pleasant, the tea is complex in flavor, and the aftertaste is very nice.|
|This tea should be drunk indoors to so much more relish the wonderful aroma. A true beauty of the Da Hong Pao teas.|
|special tea for special times.....i will order more next time...|

|Never having tried this particular variety of Da Hong Pao, I decided to take a chance and bought an entire box. The tea is wrapped in 8 gram foil packets, two to a pack, ten packs to a box. The size and design of the packs elicited a chuckle -- they look very much like cigarette packs. Theyīve proven to be excellent for gifts, though Iīve had the opportunity to try the tea myself. Itīs excellent as far as Wu Yi oolongs go. I would definitely recommend this one.|
|Well package as a gift therefore used as gift to friends.|
|I love this tea! Itīs affordable and is very pleasant aroma-wise!|
|Excellent Da Hong Pao. Wonderful fragrance with a sweet orchid after taste that lingers in your mouth for a while...|

|Very nice! Last quite a few infusions! Definitely a keeper!|
|I have to agree with others here on this one.
Being the same price as the Cha Wang version this DHP pretty much comes lower in absolutely every catergory, the only thing Iīm liking is that each box contains 2 8g bags instead of 1 16.
However this isnīt insentive enough for me to choose this over the excellent CW.|
|Very good fragrant da hong pao. has alot of cinnimon, plum and a touch of powdered sugar. Reminds me of the da hong pao served in the wu yi moutain park.
|Nothing special, would rather go for the Wu Yi Cha Wang Da Hong Pao.|
| Strong taste, but too many broken leaves, one would expect better from Wu Yi star company, the cha wang version is much better at the same price.|
|The aroma is can rival that of a Dancong, and its taste is robust like coffee, but not nearly as acidic. It also has a pretty decent Qi.|
|Deeply aromatic brew with a nutty, slightly sweet aftertaste. Earthy tones like a puerh, but doesnīt loose the characteristic upper notes of an oolong. A good every day tea.|
|Not as good as I was expecting for this one--lots of broken leaves and nothing to distinguish it from your average Da Hong Pao. |
|Nice oolong tea with deep, rich flavour and a soothing aftertaste. A little more floral and sweeter than the standard DHP.|
|Aromatic and subtle, with surprising for Da Hong Pao honey sweet aftertaste. No bitterness observed.|
|Exceptionally delicious with a sweet aftertaste. Multiple infusions are possible.
|Leaves were broken, making what would be a good DHP bitter. I tried picking the biggest pieces (none were whole) and brewing those with satisfactory results. Much better examples of this tea can be found elswhere.|
