The 5501 Nanyang Story Zhong Cha Liu Bao is quite young, but it has great potential. Creamy flavours of camphor and mossy forest floor with a certain freshness.
The 2001 XY Yiwu Gushu Shu Puerh from Lao Tea Shop is a sweet shou puerh with strong camphor notes in the finish and long-lasting aftertaste.
The 2002 CNNP Dai Language 7542 sheng puerh from puerhprivate is a good example of (semi-) aged sheng. It had a camphor flavour profile with a creamy touch.
The Late 90s Wuzhou Three Cranes Big Leaves Liu Bao is an impressive tea full of camphor. Very warming tea that is perfect for a rainy Autumn day.
The 1999 4 Gold Coins Liu Bao is full of creamy camphor and really goes the distance. This is definitely my favourite Liu Bao right now.
Yunnan Sourcing’s 2013 Yong De Blue Label Ripe Pu-er is a good everyday shou. It starts out earthy with notes of camphor and becomes really sweet.
