1980s Spring Tips Liu Bao - 1 oz | 28 grams
Liu bao is a type of fermented and aged tea which actually inspired the process of “cooking” puerh tea - resulting in what we now know as Shou puerh. Unfortunately, the tea market is saturated with low quality, poorly-fermented, and likely toxic examples of these kinds of cooked teas. As a result, many people have come to associate cooked tea with flavors like earth, dirt, fermentation, fishiness and other unappealing tastes.
What we have here is a pristine example of what Liu bao tea can and should be.
This perfectly aged and stored Liu bao from the 1980s is made from pure spring buds.
This tea has the classical pine flavor associated with high-quality Liu bao plus a rich “red date” kind of sweetness, and really enjoyable smoothness that is thirst-quenching while causing salivation.
Liu bao is a tea that is prized for its ability to assist in digestion and improve circulation. I find this tea is great to drink with meals to help with digestion and is also great post-meal, or anytime you might feel heavy or off. It’s also perfect as a great daily drinker, really any time of day or night due to it’s mellow Qi and pristine aging.
So grab a bag or two now so you can experience one of the most delicious Liu bao teas that I have ever come across.
