Six Forts - Liu Bao - 六堡

Description

Liu Bao is a very special Tea with unique flavor profile that is appreciated by seasoned tea connoisseurs. If you want to taste the History of Chinese Migrants you have to taste Liu Bao.

A favorite with Singapore and Malaysian Tea collectors, Liubao has made a comeback in China when Dark  Tea lovers went searching for a traditional and rare Dark Tea flavour. When it has been well processed and properly stored, it will age beautifully. It is hard to find high quality Liubao nowadays, so we hunted this one down all the way into its origins in Guangxi !

We offer two vintages from the same plantation, both as clean and representative. The 2003 vintage has already acquired a rounded aged taste for those who enjoy aged teas. The 2016 still offer a slight younger flavor with good body and taste.

Tasting Notes:

Betel nut distinctive flavor that gives it the taste of spices. Round and full bodied. Certain Mellowness can be found in the aftertaste.

Drinking Tips:

  • – Good to pair with cheese and meats. Excellent companion for heavy meals.
  • – Drink this tea with your tea lover friends as it is a great to discuss and discover its flavors.
  • – This tea can be boiled after the infusions have gone bland, in order to give the leaves a new life.
  • – Excellent tea for aging, remember to store it properly.

 


Notes for Tea Nerds:

* All of our product pictures for the Tea soup features the middle infusion combined. (if the tea can be infused 8 times, then we combine 4th-5th to take the picture)

* All of our product pictures featured a bit more quantity of tea leaves infused, that’s because we have heavier palate and we are drinking the teas as we take the pictures 😉

* The number of infusions  for each product consider infusions with easily recognized taste, we do not count infusions that have its taste already fading away; said this each tea can be infused more times if desired. Also many of our teas can be boiled after being infused.
