Liu Bao is becoming more popular in the west and has been popular in China and Malaysia for a long time. But what is Liu Bao tea and where does it come from?
The 2000 Laoshu Liubao from Characteas was an interesting and delicious Liu Bao that combines camphor and beetroot. Earthy and tasty combination!
The 2005 Three Cranes Special Grade Liu Bao from Lao Tea Shop is a lubricating tea with hints of walnuts, spices and damp wood. Perfect as a daily drinker.
The 2007 Suiyuan Guangxi Liu Bao 0506 from Lao Tea Shop is all about body experience and sitting in front of a fire under a blanket. Really warming tea.
Over the course of the last few months, I have been reading and learning more about Liu Bao tea. It’s far less popular than Puerh tea so I really had to look for a good tea shop in Europe.
