Shadow and Light - Liu Bao Black Tea 90's - 1.5 oz.
With the sweet mineral quality of good Liu Bao fermented black tea, this well-aged treasure is wonderfully unctuous and smooth like silk, revealing a pleasant Hui Tian 回甜 (cool sweetness that rises after). Reminding one of wet earth after the storm, mild stony mushrooms and mildly sweet walnuts, Shadow and Light is satisfying on all levels. The Qi is cooling and balancing, equally calming to the mind while moving the Qi from the core outward down the extremities as well as aiding digestion. The pleasant coolness and settling quality reminds one of the feeling after any activity that moves us into the parasympathetic nervous system like meditation or Tai Qi.
