This Liubao did not disappoint me with a brilliant clean aged taste that is unlike others I’ve had. This tea is a reminder that classic teas really do earn their titles. Sweetness and a medicinal flavor mixed with Betel nut and a hint of camphor are the notes that stood out to me. There is a thickness to this tea that is similar to other aged teas from this time period. I requested the unbroken larger pieces of tea that age more similarly to Puer cakes as I wanted more intact leaves. I am so thankful to Yee On tea for carrying such a treasure. Be sure to get a hold of some of you are a serious Liubao drinker.
