2002 aged wild Liu bao 803 review
Dry leaf: green, veggies, cut grass. I never smelled a raw puerh like this before! ( this is a raw puerh right?) what is it that I’m smelling?
Wet leaf: im so confused! Is this a raw or ripe? If this is a raw, it smells cool aged. light earth/fermentation. heavy autumn leaves
Just found out it might not be a sheng or shou :( I was hoping this is what aged sheng would smell like.
My friend says it could be a black tea or an oolong and a small chance it could be a sheng
So now I hear it’s a hei cha.
Well sadness aside, on with the review
1x medium rinse
I let it sit for about a half hour to 45 mins.
Light steep: I taste/smell; light —→ earth/fermentation, autumn leaves. Slight camphor.
Medium steep: I taste/smell; medium —→ earth/fermentation, autumn leaves. Light camphor
Heavy steep: I taste/smell; strong earth/fermentation, autumn leaves. Light to medium camphor. Light mud.
All in all this is an amazing tea! The taste, aroma and cha qi is amazing. I rate a 100!
Many thanks AllanK for this sample!
