2008 Da Hong Pao Has Arrived and is Delicious!

I can’t help but post about how delicious the new Da Hong Pao (Big Red Robe) is.  We did a taste test against the 2007 and while the older Da Hong Pao is certainly a delicious tea, the new one blew my mind.  It is filled with complexities, nuances, subtleties, and plenty of flavor.  There is a very nice dried date flavor along with a sweet roast taste that hangs on the tongue for what seemed like hours afterwards.  And with an yixing pot, we got about ten steepings out of it.  This is a tea that is not to be missed.  I know we just did Da Hong Pao at a Friday tasting in September, but I think we’re going to compare the two different years at another tasting in November.  Check the schedule for exactly when.  Or just get in and buy a pot.  You will not be disappointed!
