I guess you can’t like them all. I have tried a number of Liu Bao teas now and have found only a few that I truly liked. This one started out with a note of bamboo then moved on to a note of whiskey. Then it moved on to something else that I am not sure how to describe. It never got truly sweet like the ripe puerh liu bao is an attempt to emulate. I bought a whole bing of this one so I will age it for a year and see what I think of it then.
I steeped this tea ten times in a 150ml gaiwan with 12.2g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, and 1 minute. There were more steeps in the leaves but I did not have any desire to continue.
Flavors: Bamboo, Whiskey
