Regular price $25.00 Sale

This is an ultra mellow and lighter aged tea. This does not have the medicine taste. Rather it is smooth and very cleanly aged in Hong Kong. These baskets weigh about 500g but we are selling them by the ounce. Whole complete baskets available by request.

This is a special tea from Anhui County, China. It is specially processed and aged in these bamboo and palm baskets. Sometimes classified as a green tea, it is processed partially to bring  out good tastes like an oolong and the oxidation of a black tea. Liu AN really needs aging from 15 years and over to really mellow and balance. This is one reason why this tea is so desired and collected. These baskets sat in Hong Kong which is known for its great tea aging humidity and environment. 1980 vintage.
