Pu Er and Aged Tea
China

Liu Bao 2006 Lao Cha Po

Product code: CSTVI-15
Add to my notebook

An instant favourite from François from his last trip to China.

In line with traditional Liu Bao, the large brown leaves of this tea have been compressed into bamboo baskets to be aged. Strong aromas of forest undergrowth gracefully fuse with a soft liquor which includes spicy nuances (fennel) and sweet (maple water).

A most refreshing tea!
