Product Description

Looking for a Chinese New Year gift for tea connoisseurs? Our 2021 Lunar New Year Gift Set includes two award-winning Chinese tea. Da Hong Pao (Oolong) and Dragon Well (Green) both are part of the top 10 Chinese Teas. Chinese New Year, also known as Lunar New Year or Spring Festival, is China's most important festival, we choose those 2 most famous teas for tea lovers to celebrate the Spring Tea Festival together.

Da Hong Pao is one of the most famous oolong teas in the world. It comes from the famous Wuyi mountains. It is one of 5 ‘Rock Teas’ meaning the teas are grown in more rocky areas making the mineral content in the soil much denser. This is what gives the 5 rock teas their signature flavours. What makes Da Hong Pao special is its darker, heavier and more oxidized flavor. This very full bodied tea has a very particular sweetness to it and is reminiscent of baked goods or molasses.
