Liu Bao Black Tea 2000
$34.00 Regular price


Elegance has a smooth, thick, herbacious chocolatiness. It's exquisitely clean and rich with the slightest astringency around the edges. Consisting of old-growth leaves, aged since 2000 in Malaysia, Elegance is reminiscent of an antique crafted by a master, found in the back of a shop somewhere. Due to the temperate climate and steady seasons in Malaysia, teas stored there over long periods of time take on a similar smoothness.

Although we enjoy Liu Bao year round, it helps clear heat from the body, making it ideal for warmer days when you want an earthy flavor, no heaviness, and cooling energy.

Origin: Guangxi Province, China

Liu Bao is fermented and dried in a long delicate process in preparation for further ageing. During the tin-mining boom of the 19th century, enormous quantities of Liu Bao and other teas were imported into Malaya as a customary beverage for the colonies of hard-working Chinese migrants who worked the mines. After the collapse of tin prices in the 1980s, mining declined and the huge stockpiles of Liu Bao were left in storage for decades or sold cheaply for consumption by the local Chinese population. This type of tea is a special treasure that often escapes even a mention in modern books on tea. We are lucky to have some and to share it with you.
