A traditional Liu An dark tea recipe. Very special and different from Guang Xi dark tea. This tea was wrapped tightly into a bamboo basket. Two baskets are tied up together.
So we recommend you buy 2 baskets one time if you would like to store up.
The loose leaves of this tea are strong and tight.
The tea soup is clean in dark amber color.
And the flavor is earthy with a very special mint note. Smooth and sweet.
This tea has been stored for 3 years. Years of vintage makes it really mild and mellow. Very comfortable in stomach.
Another interest thing about this tea is, if you don't like the typical earthy flavor of dark tea, you could tear off part of the wrapping bamboo leave and brew it together with the tea leaves. The bamboo leave will give you a very fresh yet very special tasting experience.
