Tasting this 5+ year-old basket Liu An this weekend with my lovely wife.
Got confused a little about LA. What I understand was: 1-LA should only be using spring buds to produce. 2-Only produce once a year. 3-From Anhui province. 4-Should be aged 2-3 years prior to sales/release.
So, is this the same species closer to puerh/oolong/green or red?
The floral was very pronounced with this LA, with a good aftertaste of sweetness and beet. Unfortunately, this only lasted for 6-7 infusions before it turns into sweet water. So, was this cooked or half/half? But the tea leaves do not seem to be too dark?
Should I take on adventure into Anhui province next year.....
