From The Essence of Tea

Not Pu’er, but since this is the only Liu An I sell, I decided to include it in this category.

Although the wholesaler was claims this tea as being from the 70’s, as far as I can tell, this Liu An was produced in the early-mid 80’s by Sun Yi Shun company.

The storage has been good – despite being stored for most of its life in Hong Kong and then Taiwan, it has not received too much humidity and still retains the flavour of the tea.

This tea really opens up after the first few infusions, with the chaqi waking up and the characteristic Liu An flavour coming through.

More photos and tasting notes coming in a few weeks. I’m travelling at the moment and don’t have a good chance to redrink this tea.

Approx. 500g basket of which approx 450g is tea

This is a very good example of an aged liu an. It starts off with a little wierd taste from storage (not bad just different). But when most teas are starting to fade this tea is just waking up. Becoming quite tasty. The durability of this tea is impressive. I have had pots of this tea last almost a week with extended brewing. there are very few aged liu an teas available online this is a good one.
