Liu Bao Black Tea (Ten Years Aged)

from 15.00

This small-medium leaf black tea is rich with everlasting earthiness!

Often confused with Shou Pu’er tea, Liu bao is a black tea in the truest sense of the term. While most of what we call black tea in the West is referred to by the Chinese as hong cha (red tea), Liu bao marks itself an exception to this rule.

Liu Bao tea is grown traditionally in Guangxi province. It is then fermented, dried, and prepared for further aging. If the quality of the leaf is good, then this tea ages like a fine wine. Except, it isn’t wine. It’s Liu bao! :)

Liu Bao is an excellent daily drinker after meals. It’s properties increase the capacity for digestion and assimilation - particularly with fats and oils. It’s mildly sweet and bitter flavors combine to warm and assist the Chinese medicine earth organs (the spleen and the stomach) in transport.

Younger Liu Bao has the Qi of a teenager wise beyond their years. This tea knows much of benefiting the body, but carries a bit of understandable feistiness. This quality makes younger liu bao an ideal drink for early the morning - an assistant in the rise of the day.

Older Liu Bao has the Qi of an elder sage. This tea instantly relaxes the musculature and allows for the descent into grace. These qualities make older liu bao an ideal tea to drink later on in the day or at night. This tea is also a great companion in times of uncertainty or during periods of cultivation.
