The 2005 4 Gold Coins from Lao Tea Shop is another fantastic Liu Bao. It’s full of camphor and a lubricating creaminess that just keeps going.
The 2011 4 Gold Coins Liu Bao from Lao Tea Shop is another great tea. It has everything I look for in a good Liu Bao: cream and camphor.
The 1999 Second Millennium Sun Withered Raw Puerh from Yee On Tea had strong camphor notes from the middle onwards. Good mouthfeel and creamy texture.
The 1990 Hong Kong Sheng from Vin-Satori is the best aged sheng puerh I have ever tasted. Intense camphor with a creamy finish in some infusions.
The 2001 Wuzhou Liu Bao 9102 from Yee On tea is the perfect every day Liu Bao. It starts out with notes of betel nut and changes into sweet camphor.
The 1998 Bao Yan Jin Cha Xiaguan from Tee Kontor Kiel is a sheng puerh with exceptionally clean storage. Notes of camphor and spices with a sweet finish.
The 2007 Red Label from Yee On Tea is a tribute to the original Red Mark puerh from the 1950s. It’s sweet with strong notes of incense and camphor.
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.
ANMO’s 2005 Master Loo Tea Brick is shou puerh with a woodsy flavour profile. It went from visiting a sawmill to walking through a camphor forest.
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.
