Two-years Cave-aged Liubao



April 2020

Liu Bao, Guangxi

This is a great introductory Liu Bao tea, made entirely from the youngest first harvest leaves from Liu Bao, Wuzhou, Guangxi. The tea was crafted in the spring of 2020, and then aged in an underground cave for 2 years.

Liu Bao can be aged for a very long time, and we consider this 2 year aged tea a lighter and more refreshing version of Liu Bao. The liquor it brew is a beautiful burnt-orange colour that darkens throughout infusions. It smells like dusty, broken stone, and as we drink it we feel it rinsing us out and hydrating the body.

Liu Bao has a ferment quality similar to ripe pu’erh, but is less viscous and lighter in feel. In fact, the taste of this cave aged Liu Bao is almost a perfect opposite of sweetness: its uplifting mineral notes and wet-earth flavour leaves us clarified, and with recalibrated senses.
