722 * Liberate


Life is a journey, where layers will be shed, and challenges are gifts that force us to look ahead. Don’t close the book, turn the page, and let Bottlebrush ‘brush’ away the wave, as you  awaken the light within, to stand in a new way. – Teresa

Tea: Liu Bao  – betel nut | herbal | pinewood | earthy | sweet

Liu Bao is a tribute tea from the 18th century. The tea literally means ‘Six Castles’ and is named after it’s original production region in Guangxi province, China. It is one of the most well known and classic Chinese dark teas (Heicha), produced from the medium to large size leaf tea plant species. It includes multiple unique and ancient stages of processing before being compressed and stored away for post-fermentation. It is traditionally aged in big bamboo baskets, which gives the dark brown leaves a pleasant bamboo hue, with the main flavour note of betel nut and a beautiful ruby liquor. If stored correctly and fermented under the right conditions, this tea ages beautifully and can be kept for many years to come, improving in taste and value.

We love this heicha for its abundant ‘golden flowers’, or ‘jin hua’ — a friendly fungus, Eurotium cristatum* that grows on the tea leaves over time in the production and/or ageing process. This is a sign of excellent fermentation and is considered very healthy to drink. It is believed to have anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, as well as to aid digestion and remove heat from the body. Liu Bao has been used medicinally for centuries, it became extremely popular during the Qing Dynasty in China and Asia, and was used as a medicinal food to settle conditions caused by different climates and environment.

The Journey: Liberate Tea brings in a new sense of freedom. How much of a change do you really want to see? What sort of journey is this vehicle going to take you on now? You’ve got every reason now, to re-write your story and every opportunity to reclaim your spirit. It’s time to wake up and stand in a new way.
It will help you find insight through your third eye chakra and help you move forward, let go, break habits and help you realise that it’s time to heal old wounds and make way for the new, especially when you are feeling broken hearted and pining for the other person, or have Mother and Father issues you want to work through. It is also very good in assisting new Mothers bond with their baby.

Create a Ritual: Drink 1-2 cups daily for 21 days or more. At the end of the cycle, you can assess how deeply the healing has gone within, and whether it will be continued for a longer period. This is a typical cycle for emotional change, and it is recommended that you take the tea for at least this period of time to fully experience its impact. The flower essence often has a subtle beginning, which gradually becomes more obvious. The tea can be discontinued when you feel you have completely absorbed or consciously recognised the benefits which were intended from it or it can be enjoyed as a beverage.
