From Dobra Tea

A unique and ancient tea from Guanxi, properly of the category “Hei Cha”, these aged leaves produce a healthy and soothing infusion like a smooth red wine. Not strictly Puer (an appellation restricted to Yunnan Hei Cha), this tea’s humid aging process is the precursor to the development of Shou (熟普洱) Puer tea in Kunming. Our Liu Bao is loose rather than in brick form.

Dark stick-like leaves. This tea is loose. Aroma of sweet hay and citrus fruits. A red amber color in the cup. Sweet tasting but with a light body and an amazingly long smooth finish. Reminiscent of some very short-brewed Shu puer of impressive quality. In lower quality Shu bings I have tasted, the flavor is earthy and muddy without much nuance to the aroma other than getting heavier as infusions progress. This tea shares the soft body and comfort to the stomach, but the flavors and aroma are delicious. Not being a brick, I think this will not give many infusions (when compared to similar Puer) but the infusions that exist are very much worth the sacrifice.
