Description

October 3rd, 2021

This is an excellent ripe liubao from a lesser known factory. This is really lovely tea with an enticing sweet flavor that reminds me of light fermentation ripe pu erh, but with distinct character. No humid traditional storage notes here! Just a lovely pleasant taste and a smooth drinking experience.

I bought a large amount of this tea based on a sample I received from one of my suppliers. The larger quantity I just received is more aged and further along, and is much mellower and smoother in the cup. The bitterness has receded significantly as well, although there is a tiny bit left after the swallow. There is also a hint of astringency in the cup. 

This tea has milk chocolate and vanilla flavors, as well as a hint of camphor underneath the sweeter, dessert-like flavors. I even detect distinct hazelnut later in the session. The energy from this tea is gently calming, but there is a good, strong caffeine hit waiting beyond that, so you've been warned.

This is truly excellent value for the experience in the cup, and one of my all-time favorite ripe liubaos, especially at this price point.
