Description

16th November, 2019

This is a lovely super grade liu bao from Three Cranes! This was released by the factory in September 2019, and the material passed the Chinese government's pesticide and heavy metal testing with flying colors! I am very particular about the liu bao I purchase and much prefer to only purchase Three Cranes tea because of the brand's reliability. Three Cranes is a Time Honored Brand in China, meaning it is recognized as a trustworthy brand by the government. 

I pushed this tea hard in a gaiwan to test it. You can definitely tell this tea was traditionally stored, but the storage was done perfectly. This is a very pleasant tea already and I'd happily drink this from porcelain. 

The liquor is nice and thick with pleasant, chocolate-like bitterness, and it's nice and smooth on the throat as well. I could detect sweet jujube under the storage notes, so perhaps with more time with me, the storage would dissipate (perhaps entirely) to reveal more of the jujube underneath. There is both huigan and kuwei here (sweetness as well as sweetness resulting from bitterness). As the liquor cools, the storage becomes much less apparent, so I really do believe this tea would age to become even cleaner tasting.

I found this tea to be very calming, and it even took my headache away! 

I'd rinse this tea just once: the material is very small due to the high leaf grade, and it's really a very clean and well stored tea!
