2001 Golden Flowers Liu Bao Tea from Guangxi
Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Tea Shop
This a perfect example of a clean and complex aged Liu Bao. Special traditional fermentation process gives the tea a mellow, sweet and spicy taste. Golden Yellow spores called "golden flowers" (金花) have been allowed to flourish just after pressing, which gives this Liu Bao a unique taste and feeling.
Processed in 2001 and then packed into 25 kilogram baskets this tea still has some lumps and chunks but is easily pried apart. The tea soup is sweet and thick... there is a camphor spice and hint of aged raw pu-erh. The feeling in the mouth is pleasant and coats the mouth and throat long after drinking. Very clean storage condition, with basically no moldy taste.
A great opportunity to enjoy a 16 year aged Liu Bao tea!
Order 250 grams and get it in the pictured canister packaging.
