Liu Bao Tea, literally means ‘Six Fort tea’ is a kind of dark tea, which named after the origin, Liu Bao Xiang of Guangxi. According to the grade of raw materials, Liu Bao Tea can be divided into seven grades, from superfine grade, grade one to grade six. TeaVivre’s Liu Bao Tea belongs to grade one with dark brown color. Same as Pu-erh tea, Liu Bao Tea is the aged the better. Its taste will be sweeter and smoother and aroma will change accordingly.

 

The tea liquor is bright red in color, presenting a very beautiful color. Once it enters our mouth, we can fully feel its soft and mellow taste. It is full and thick, just like drinking rice soup. While we swallow it, the soft and smooth feeling presents immediately, along with a very comfortable and sweet feeling. Besides, Liu Bao Tea is also very suitable for boiling, which not only can help release its embedded substance, but also can make the liquor more mellow and full.

Tea Garden

Yaming Bai Hao tea garden covers a total area of about 1,000 mu, all in a mountainous area between 500 and 1200m above sea level. The garden is surrounded by woods and often shrouded in clouds and mist during dawn and at night, which prevent the majority of the harmful effects of UV rays on the growth of the tea plants. To ensure tea quality, chemical pesticides and fertilizers are strictly forbidden here - and based on this, Yaming tea garden earned its organic authorization in 2015.

Origin

China is the hometown of tea production, while Guangxi is the birthplace of Baihao tea itself. These trees are commonly grown high in Guangxi mountains at areas between 800 and 1500m. The average annual precipitation here is 1500-2000mm, and the temperature varies between 16-23℃ on average.

Tea Bush

It is said that the Baihao variety is the only one versatile enough for producing all of the six basic tea types - green, white, black, yellow, oolong, and pu-erh.

This tree belongs to the large-leaf species, with elastic, tender yellowish-green leaves that contain an abundance of polyphenols, amino acids, and pectin. One test shows that Baihao leaves contain 3.36% amino acids, 35.6% polyphenols, 4.91% caffeine, and 182.92 mg/g catechinic acid.

In 1964 a large number of wild Baihao trees were discovered growing in Lingyun County, Guangxi, with the largest measured at 9.96m in height with a trunk diameter of 25cm, and a canopy 6.38m wide.
