This Da Hong Pao (大红袍) also known as Big Red Robe tea has been carefully aged in Wuyishan for 8 years, and then roasted again. The tea was produced in the spring 2008 season. The tea was roasted recently, and has a strong roast flavor. This tea exhibits much of the characteristics of aged tea. Like any aged product there is a trade off between time spent aging and the cost. This 8 year aged da hong pao provides a reasonable balance and is a good entry point into aged wuyi teas.
