Description:

Made entirely from spring 2002 material, this Banna wetter stored tea cake sports a smooth aged taste with a floral / camphor aroma. The tea was stone pressed by traditional method and stored in hot and humid Jing Hong until 2011 when it was brought to Kunming. Nice wetter stored tea with aged feel and taste!
380 grams per cake

Wet storage

5 stars 5.0 This review helped: +1 / 0

The smell is really full-bodied, earthy with a light fruity flavor. The taste is surprisingly balanced. Considering the wet storage, the taste is pleasantly balanced and uplifting. There is a nice connection of earth and heaven :-) Definitely worth trying. I am personally considering purchase of a whole cake. The price is not so high, taking in account age: sample 25g - $8, cake 380g - $53

Very good, already quite matured tea. You can taste wet storage, but only during the first infusion. The infusion is beautifully full, fruity aroma is intense, mixing with mellow - earthiness. The tea is really very nice. I bought the whole cake after sample. It is definitely worth trying.
