Our Liu Bao is rich and full bodied. It is clean and bright with a thick liquor that coats the entire mouth. With distinct earthy and woody notes that have a distinct long sweet finish reminiscent of ripe plum.

Liu Bao has a long history in Chinese tea that can be traced back to as early as Qing Dynasty. Early Chinese immigrants often travelled to Malaysia with a basket of Liu Bao with them to aid in digestion of foreign foods. In the late 1980s when the Chinese government was looking for a way to age pu er, tea specialists studied many dark teas, and found Liu Bao’s processes to be most suitable to accelerate ageing of raw pu er.
