556 Tasting Notes

Wonderful, Steeped in the gaiwan using short steeps of 30 seconds up to 1 minute this one brews up a pale yellow color with a smooth almost buttery flavors to me, this is also very nice to feel in the mouth velvety smooth. The steeped leaves have a nice floral aroma that is absent in the liquor. It leaves a pleasant taste lingering in my mouth like a sweet aftertaste very nice.

I prefer dark teas and Liu Bao is one of my favs This one ranks right up there with most of the rest, 2 or 3 rinses is needed for this tea I learned that the hard way lol but after proper rinse and steep this one proved very nice Liu Bao. It was nice and earthy without tasting “dirty” with a sweetish after taste, smooth mouthfeel. Would have been great to have seen some gold dust on it but most loose Liu Bao I’ve had don’t have that for some reason. Great tea to me!

Thank you for the feedback! As for the gold dust. It normally happens on brick teas. Due the modern processing of Liu Bao or other dark teas. Tea bricks normally under process of –>Raw material selection—> Steam, Moistens Piling–>Compressing –>Baking (28 degree C for 12-15 days, the gold dusts start appearing at this step) –> Drying (35-40 degree C for 5-7 days)–>Packing and storage. The loose leaf tea normally will not go under compressing and the baking process is short. So you will not see gold dusts on most of the loose leaf dark teas. But loose leaves are easy to store without going mouldy and some longer aged loose leaves produces gold dust naturally during storage. It’s flavor will become even more spacial and tasty. That’s the fan part of aged dark teas, right?

Very good Tea! I thought at first from looking at this tea that it was a green tea but I see it’s called a yellow tea. I didn’t follow steeping instructions on this one and I just used the gaiwan with steeps less than one minute and it is wonderful and not weak at all from such a short steep, reminds me of some of the oolongs I’ve had and feels great in the mouth makes ya just want to swish it around a little. Maybe I’ll try following the directions to see what happens :)

Steeping it using the direction was also great, the flavor is of course a little stronger and it has a nice after taste.

Hmmm, interesting, Tastes good almost Oolong like and it was a dark green color, like incredible hulk green.

Funny…I didn’t notice that you had reviewed this right before I reviewed one with the same tea base…the Kenya Purple Tea. It is interesting…floral but not heavy.

This made me laugh, and once I started I couldn’t stop. My entire family came into my room to see what was going on. Now they think I’m even crazier than they suspected. :D

I wondered if it was a test to see if we really read the reviews we “like.” :)

I really liked this one it steeps up yellowish with a really nice aroma, slightly nutty taste with fruity aftertaste and the “mouthfeel” is awesome too.

I enjoy orange in my teas sometimes and an orange oolong is yummy but I can never find one already made that tastes good to me without tasting artificial so I just dry my own orange peels to add to my teas, This oolong was perfect with the orange added.
