Description

June 23rd, 2020
 
I'm very careful about the liubao I purchase since I'm worried about chemical and pesticide contamination with some of the smaller factories: this Zhongcha liubao comes with a very comprehensive pesticide report from the government of Fujian, and passed Chinese standards with flying colors. Not everything Zhongcha puts out in 2020 is worth the money, but this liubao greatly surpassed my expectations.

My first surprise was that this tea is sold in sealed packages: this was initially concerning, since I like my danker teas to breathe, but this tea appears to have been processed and aged just right. The moisture level was maintained at just the right level for the tea to remain stable and perhaps even age in the bag!

This tea smells very clean. It smells like a clean Hong Kong traditional storage ripe pu erh. After one rinse, the liquor was clean with almost no storage flavor in the cup, and distinctive betelnut character. The liquor is smooth and clean, and this holds up very well against Three Cranes' grade III liubao. This is a lovely daily-drinker grade liubao of top quality and one I'd be happy to drink regularly! While this tea isn't a heavy hitter as far as cha qi, it is very comfortable to drink and lightly calming.

Please note samples may come from a package I have opened, so they may taste even cleaner from aging in my warehouse than tea directly from a sealed 500g package.
