Liu Bao Shen Xiang 1987

Product code: CSTVI-189
Add to my notebook

Thirty years of Guangxi's humid climate has benefited this aged tea, slowly developing its large curly leaves. Its opaque and rich liquor is velvety and deeply marked by its woody (root) and mineral character. Shades of leather and dried fruit (prune) accompany the fine scent of ginseng (Sen Xiang) that tickles the palate. A long mineral finish leaves behind a sweet aftertaste.

Thirty plus years of ripening have enhanced this tea which, once infused, offers a dense and opaque liquor. Silky and generously sweet, it carries its effects deep down the throat giving the impression of a gentle massage. Nuances of wet wood, dates, incense and spices all lead towards a refreshing and minty finish, like we love them!

Liu Bao Ye Sheng Gu Shu 2002

This tea, a little over 15 years old, was produced according to a historical heritage dating back nearly 1,500 years. Compressed in large baskets of bamboo (sometimes up to 50 kg) it consists of a mixture of leaves and stems blackened by moisture and time. Its sweet and earthy liquor is embellished with rooting aromas of spices (anise) and burnt wood. It also ranks in the family of Liu Bao Binlang Xiang (betel fragrance) because of the character naturally developed by its artisanal production. The finish is surprisingly fresh and sweet.
