There are famous stories about the origin of Da Hong Pao’s name. During the Ming Dynasty, there was a scholar who was very sick on his way to Beijing for an exam. A monk of Tianxin Temple found him and brewed a bowl of tea picked from Wuyi Mountain for the scholar. After drinking the tea, the scholar felt much better and more energetic. A few days later, he won first place in the exam. So he came back to the temple to thank the monk who had saved him. Later, he also used this tea to cure the emperor's illness. The emperor rewarded the scholar with a red robe and asked the scholar to put the red robe on the tea tree. The red robe was considered a high honor. The emperor ordered all officials passing through that place to put their red robes on those tea trees to show the emperor’s gratitude. Those tea trees are still present today and the tea is available only in limited quantities. It is a tea not to be missed!
