Big Red Robe is one of the top ten Chinese Oolong Teas. This tea's leaves are picked from one of the 4 famous rock tea bushes and are made tea farmers who are the 4th generation of tea families in the WuYi Mountain area. This tea is different to most other teas as the tea bushes it is picked from grows in rocks, not in soil. This would cause the tea to bring some rocky feelings to its taste.

MY Teahouse suggest using 90-95ºC to rinse the leaves for 2 seconds to wake the leaves up first. Then brewing for about 30-45 sec for the 1st-3rd infusion, 45 sec-1 minute for the 4th -6th infusions, and 1 -1.5 minutes for the 7th and more infusions. ( Clay teapot need less time then Porcelain Gaiwan)
