Da Hong Pao from Shanghai Shop

Rich golden orange liquor with a sweet pumpkin taste and a gentle roast in the aroma. Fantastic.

Such good Da Hong Pao. I bought several Wuyi teas when I was in Shanghai and I haven’t had this one in a while. Clearly I’ve been missing out! Thankfully my fiancée picked it from our tea cabinet because it has a nice tin. I remember asking for the tin specifically when I bought the tea, even though it didn’t normally come in a tin.

I felt pretty skillful at haggling because I got the tin and my hedgehog tea pet from that store at quite a discount. I’ve been wondering, though, if indeed the discount was as good as I thought, or if the proprietors were perhaps just hoping that these strange foreigners would just go away.
