One again, we follow our holiday tradition of returning to Liu Bao tea, which is a very under-appreciated and absolutely fantastic genre of tea. In fact, it is one of our favorite kinds of tea, and since it is great in the winter and summer (cooling and warming), it brings a bit of summer to our winter (or vice versa if you are in the southern parts of the world). Liu Bao tea is processed similar to shou puerh. In fact, when puerh manufacturers were developing the process of artificial fermentation used to create shou puerh in the 1960’s and early 70’s they studied Liu Bao production, amongst other kinds of black tea. Ultimately, shou puerh production methodology is based on such teas, and owes its existence to them. The main differences in production result from the unique microclimates of both locations, as well as the differences in the varietals. The raw material is very different from shou puerh to Liu Bao (large leaf versus medium leaf) and the microclimate is also very different (Yunnan is wetter and richer in all flora/fauna).

“Beneath the Pines” was donated on our trip to Malaysia this year. This tea was commissioned by a private tea lover and processed traditionally, as close to the way Liu Bao was made back in the day, with a lighter, more shallow piling like the tea made between 1958 and the 1980s. This one comes from the Wuzhou factory. It is also made from wild leaves, making it a unique Liu Bao, indeed.

Beneath the Pines is named after Wu De’s favorite Chinese poem, and captures the essence of that poem wonderfully. It tastes of a pine forest, and has a wandering uplifting Qi that makes you feel lost in such a place, with only the wind and the pine-fragrance to guide you. This month’s tea is soft and graceful, like a very pleasant autumn or early winter forest walk. It is a wonderful tea for the holiday season, as it refreshes and inspire, while remaining warm-hearted and friendly. And during the potential stresses of the holiday season, we could all use some of that energy! May we all stay grounded in the spirit of love, light and connection that informs the holidays, helping to be a supporting force of positivity amongst our colleagues, loved ones and even those whose paths we cross more gently each day. Just breathe deeply and remember what it was like standing Beneath the Pines!
