This tea is sweet, earthy and fairly tasty. I don’t know that it is real LBZ material. The Puerhshop web page says that the market went bust in 2008 and it was possible to make a reasonably priced ripe tea from LBZ. They could be telling the truth, they could be lying. In any case I wanted to try this tea. It’s good, just not incredible. I also think that all LBZ materials are not of equal quality. This is definitely not of the very highest quality. There are a variety of sweet notes to this tea but I am having difficulty identifying them.
I brewed this tea four times in a 207ml Taiwan Clay Teapot with 9.8g leaf and boiling water. I steeped it for 10 sec, 5 sec, 10 sec, and 15 sec. I don’t know if I will go back to this tea or make something else later.
