That's good enough for me and so when asked to choose any three teas by one of the owners, Kevin, I choose three Liu Baos.
The first and certainly the oldest tea I have tasted so far is Liu Bao 1980. I prepare my vessels, heat up the new kettle and I am off on my journey!
Four steeps in and I am not yet ready to fully describe it. The leaves are waking up very slowly and only at the fifth steep am I beginning to taste some subtle nuances coming through the earthy tones just in the back of my throat.
