Description

This type of liu an is very popular with the older generation. It is a pleasant, mild tea with a lovely sweet aroma from the aglaia odorata buds. The liu an has none of the smoke traditionally found in young raw liu an tea. I couldn't describe the aroma as it is really unique to these flowers; you'd have to try it for yourself. Scented liu an is used medicinally in Traditional Chinese Medicine and is believed to protect against minor infections and other ailments. I make no guarantees or affirmations of that sort whatsoever, but here's a link to the Wikipedia article on aglaia odorata:



This liu an is sold here, but almost never offered outside the region. This is a local dealer's standard grade, and I've only seen people in their 50s and 60s buying this tea. It is an economically priced and pleasant tea I always enjoy drinking, but it is not a tea I drink often. 

I got three infusions from this tea when brewing it quite lightly. It should be good for four to five (or more) infusions when using more leaf. I brewed this tea with water at full boil and rinsed twice, but this tea is clean enough that one rinse is entirely sufficient. 

Please note: most traditional Hong Kong tea merchants do not offer discounts on volume until I am purchasing several kilograms at a time, and in some cases, no discounts are offered at all, even for ten kilos of a single tea or more. For this reason, I cannot offer a discount on larger purchases of this tea at this time.
