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!

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.

Quotes - Pu-erh


„Bĭng: The tea cake itself. Tea cakes or other compressed pu'er can be made up of two or more grades of tea, typically with higher grade leaves on the outside of the cake and lower grades or broken leaves in the center. This is done to improve the appearance of the tea cake and improve its sale. Predicting the grade of tea used on the inside takes some effort and experience in selection. However, the area in and around the dimple of the tea cake can sometimes reveal the quality of the inner leaves.“

Quotes

„龙井 Longjing - Maybe the most well-known green tea in China. It originates in Hangzhou (杭州), the capital of Zhejiang Province. Longjing in Chinese literally means dragon well. It is pan-fried and has a distinctive flat appearance. The tasteless frying oil is obtained from tea seeds and other plants. Falsification of Longjing is very common, and most of the tea on the market is in fact produced in Sichuan Province and hence not authentic Longjing.“
