Wuyi rock oolong, Yan Cha in Chinese, is produced in the Wuyi mountain prefecture of Fujian province, China. The Wuyi mountain area has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its abundance of species and rich history. Wuyi rock oolong tea is so named because of its geographic characteristics, and almost all of its rocky cliffs grow tea. The locals call the historical core producing area as Zhen Yan, meaning the true rocks/cliffs, to distinguish from other areas that produce more inferior rock oolong teas. 

Da Hong Pao, meaning Big Red Robe in Chinese, is the post child of Wuyi rock tea. The mother bushes are grown at the cliff of the Nine Dragon Rock that surrounded by the stone barrier to preserve these six bushes by the government. Nowadays the majority of Da Hong Pao on the market are blended to mimic the original character of its varietal that is indigenous to the core-producing area of the Wuyi mountains. Due to the blended nature, Da Hong Pao is the most versatile Wuyi rock oolong tea on the market, with wide range of quality and taste.
