A small sample I took from the previous Puerh TTB I believe. Humid storage and woody, maybe petrichor notes on the nose. A lot of the same in the cup too. Moderately dank – not overpoweringly so. Good body and color to the liquor of this tea. Tea was lively on the tongue and those damp woody notes were backed up by a very slight metallic sort of flavor I’ve tasted in other Liu Bao before. This was a nice one – I don’t think I would pay a premium price for it, but it was an enjoyable aged tea.
