From Bitterleaf Teas

in the 6 Treasures Liu Bao Heicha Tasting Set:

Another tea that uses the old varietal (桂青种), a ginseng fragrance is the firs thing that stands out. This tea tries to replicate traditional processing, but also represents a higher end lao (old) Liu Bao. These is a nice aged flavour/陈香, making this good for people who like/seek out vintage teas. Overall, this tea is quite complex with lots going on in the throat and back of the tongue. There is a salivating feeling and nice huigan amongst an otherwise savoury experience, all the while quite clean for a 20 year old tea. This could be described as a “meal of tea”.

Tastes more like a ripe than a raw; I’m a little unclear from the notes which it is. Good body and depth — very slightly medicinal, though I wouldn’t have picked it out if the notes from Bitterleaf didn’t include it. Salivation without astringency. Overall, though, I feel this is lacking complexity and the surprising, delightful discoveries which make me love [raw] Liu Bao.

Maybe a good fireside sipper for autumn and winter…
