Liubao Hei Cha

 

A precursor to more well-known Hei Cha like Pu'er, its character will be familiar to—and likely enjoyed by—connoisseurs of Shu Pu; indeed, the novel processing method for the latter was based on the traditional process for Liu Bao. The similar results speak for themselves: flavourful, full-bodied liquor with notes of wood, plum, and red currant. And yet, it is, if anything, lighter but more mouth-filling, with a texture one can almost bite into, and could serve alongside hearty biscuits or greasy food, or practically as a meal unto itself.
