We are preparing a couple more loose Liu Bao, one 1985 and the other 2001. Should be available next week.
Will those new ones be listed before your black Friday sale ends?

Hi faj
Sorry it won’t be ready. Also the 85 is a limited collection product so it’ll not apply the 20% discount. We can always apply a custom item in the order if you are interested in the two and want to order as part of the sale.

It took a while but we finally have the 1985 Yee On Tea Co. Liu Bao online for orders.

Since the 60's before Yee On Tea Co. became a retail store, we were creating Liu Bao for export to S.E.A. And this Liu Bao is the last of the remaining stock from that period of manufacturing Liu Baos in HK.

Liquor: Chestnut red.

Flavour: First few infusions have a rich, smooth aged tea impression, slight sesame flavour, stimulating. Follow with more obvious traditional betel nut and sesame flavour accompany with comfortable cha qi. Last few infusions are long-lasting and have a very stable aged tea taste. Infused tea leaves are thick grade 7 dark colour leaves. slightly rigid, with a small number of branches.

It's been a while since I had the time to brew tea, but I've been drinking the best taste ripe puerh over christmas, and it's a nice daily drinker. Quite simple taste, but very pleasant. Prefer this over the YS Hui run cakes as a daily drinker. Brought a jar of it to work :)

Planning to crack open the 2008 taste of HK cake later tonight.

Same here. The taste of Hong Kong cake has to go. Definitely in these freezing temperatures!

My experience with this cake has been amazing! Will be buying a tong... or two. Punches well above its weight.
