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 2004 Shi Kun Mu Yibang Gushu from Lao Tea Shop was good but subtle. I got a combination of dark honey and sour apples.
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.

The 2005 Zhong Cha Duoteli Grade 3 Liu Bao is a tea that goes the distance and is there when you need it. Solid tea with a betel nut flavour profile.
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 2011 Zhong Cha Worker’s Special Grade Liu Bao from Lao Tea Shop is an excellent everyday Liu Bao. It has a camphor flavour profile with notes of wood.
