FIRST GRADE LIU BAO
Liu Bao is a red tea of the late-fermented type. It hails from the Liu Bao Village of Cangwu County in Guangxi Province, hence the name. The Picking for this tea is one bud with two to three leaves or one bud with three to four leaves, processing involves fixation, rolling, pile fermentation, repeat rolling and firing.
Liu Bao Tea are usually sold loose, or in a compressed cylindrical shape with a square base. The latter is traditionally packed in a bamboo basket to facilitate further ageing, which improves the flavour over time.
The long, tight tea leaves are dark brown with a natural gloss. They give a coppery red infusion with a pronounced yet mellow aroma, and a rich and smooth taste with a hint of betel nut. This is great daily beverage with health-benefitting properties. It helps eliminate internal heat, nourish our lungs, expel internal dampness and facilitate digestion.
