Qidan is the clonal reproduction of Mother Tree No. 2, which is the real biological sense of Dahongpao. Although different growth environments will affect the performance of tea plant traits and thus the quality of finished tea, theoretically, there is no problem of inheritance and variation in asexual reproduction, and Qidan can maintain all the characteristics of maternal parent. In 2012, Qidan tea tree was identified as pure red robe through the certification of tea varieties in Fujian Province.So now in Wuyishan we also call Qidan as "Pure dahongpao "in chinese "纯种大红袍“”
