|Liu An tea originates from An Hui province but it first gained popularity in Guang Dong province after a Chinese doctor served it as a medicinal tea to cure heatstroke and stomach ailments in the Ming Dynasty. Because of its medicinal properties, it quickly gained fame and spread throughout China. While it is technically not a Pu-erh tea (due to the material used), the post-fermentation processing is very similar. Like Pu-erh tea, Liu An tea gets better with careful aging.|
The taste of this tea resembles that of a green/raw Pu-erh but is somewhat sweeter. After a few sips, the sweet aftertaste will linger on in your mouth. Good for multiple infusion.
Dark color tea leaves, some with stems. The infusion is orange-amberish color.
