This Liu Bao has a great taste and clean liquor, but it is lacking in terms of texture I’d say.

The aroma is elegant, earthy, and nutty, slightly marine with hints of bog vegetation. The tea tastes savoury and earthy at first with a strong medicinal presence and flavours of tamarind and fish skin. The aftertaste starts off cleansing, cooling, and bitter like anise. Additional notes include soy sauce, nuts, molasses. Soon it transforms into a sweet finish that lasts for quite a long time.

Flavors: Anise, Bitter, Earthy, Fish, Marine, Medicinal, Metallic, Molasses, Nuts, Nutty, Soy Sauce, Sweet

Boiling 0 min, 45 sec 7 g 4 OZ / 130 ML

Hi, I am a researcher in math, physics and computer science. Apart from teas and mathematics, I enjoy sports and traveling, as well as music of all kinds. Connect at https://rateyourmusic.com/~Togo

I had been drinking Japanese green tea for a while before discovering the world of tea in 2017. I rarely drink blends and generally avoid artificially scented teas. Other than that I try to keep it varied.
