From The Phoenix Collection

This tea is technically not a puerh. But it has similarities in the production process and gets most of its aroma from the post-fermentation process. Its commonly described as having ripe/raw puerh properties. This tea was aged in a man made cave by David Lee Hoffman.

Thanks to JC for sending me this one, I don’t have a ton of experience with drinking Liu-Ans, this is only the second one I have ever had! Regardless I decided to steep this in the Yixing teapot I have for shus and there is a lot of similarity to a shu pu-erh, this tea seems to me to have a slight coffee bean aroma and flavor with a hint of bitterness in the finish. Pretty interesting but I don’t know if I would buy it and I have no idea how to rate it so I’ll leave that off for now…

I know what you mean. It is VERY similar and somehow VERY different from other teas I’ve tried. I have to admit that I liked it more after several tries and finding the ‘right’ ratio of tea to water. Overall, just different. :P
