From Chawangshop

2008 year tea repacked from big baskets in 2012 to 1kg bamboo baskets. 2.grade tea leaves, classic taste of CNNP liubao. After 10 years of clean storage, this tea is good for drink. Taste is similar with “2009 CNNP Duoteli 3.Grade Liubao” which is one of our daily drink liubao.

The taste is bitter sweet in few first infusions if you brew it strong as we do, mellow with nice character , tender in mouth and easy to drink.

If you are looking for nice and unexpensive liubao tea, you can try this as sample and take whole 1kg bamboo basket. It´s packed well with carton box outside, good for storage!

I could have added profile picture from their website. But maybe someone else wants to do it with actually how it looks in a bag. Not much of a drinking note, more what goes thru my mind while drinking it. Got a free huaning cup so experimenting with that. Not sure if should get matching gaiwan, Japanese style. It is close to traditional style of liubao. Looked at nixing teapots, not sure how to combine by brutalist thermos brewing with aesthetics of teapot. I mean, it should at least look like something I want to hold in hand. I was just thought if I was on a yacht, what kind of clay would be best to absorb sea air. What kind of tea I would like to have after drinking craft beer the night before, while sitting at a terrace looking out on a beach, waiting for omelets to be ready. Maybe get eggs from seagulls. Maybe catch a crab. Maybe put a seaweed into my thermos. Thank god I am not in position to make any of these life defining decisions. One observation. I recall reading about yak butter tea that it was custom to fill it up to the drink and refill after few sips. I do it with most teas. This one, no. As if it needs to be cooled and drank from the bottom. I guess that’s normal. My issue with anything but porcelain/ glass that I can’t see colour of the brew. This one is beautiful in a yellowish speckled cup.
