Forest Bloom 2006 Liu Bao Heicha



This is the tea equivalent of discovering a flower in the forest, hence the name. Up front the flavour is notably woody, as one wood expect, but a floral undertone is persistent. Every once in a while a light orchid scent creeps in, refreshing the senses and bringing your attention back to the cup.

This tea is overall quite smooth and fragrant, with a medium body that allows for a nice texture, but still keeps enough focus on the fragrance.

If you’re sensitive to storage scent, as we are, then we recommend an additional rinse. This tea doesn’t have an overwhelming storage scent, especially compared to many other aged teas, but we did notice that it cleans up by the 2nd or 3rd brew.

We highly recommend this tea for those seeking a dynamic, yet affordable session with an aged Liu Bao.

    The “storage” flavor does stick around for the second and third brew but, personally, I don’t mind it (we’re all here because we like funk a little, right?). I didn’t really pick up much floral flavor but more like a deep forest after a heavy rain. This tea is also super smooth with a medium body and leaves a sweet, cooling sensation in the back of the throat.

    A complex, thick and lingering Liubao. An excellent production at a price that we are no longer used to in today’s market. The wet leaves bring aromas of woodland, undergrowth, mushrooms, aromatic herbs, medical herbs and balsamic tones but also an incredible floral note, both dry and fresh. The sip is thick, enveloping, almost silky, complex and intense. After 12 infusions it was still incredibly pleasant.
