Been tasting the 1990, 2000 and 2005 version of this basket, shu that is. Quite a discovery, it’s close to pu erh, but has its own character. It has a smooth woodsy fragrance, although, the 2005 still has a green touch. Quality is good, as it steeps easily 10 times and still has that nice no-nonsense flavor. As it is less popular than pu erh, prices are quite modest.

Flavors: Malt, Wood

I’ve let my basket of liu an age for three years now and it’s a marvelous variant on the pu-erh taste, with more of a nettle-like tingle. Delicious!
