Description:

Lao Banzhang 2004 is a pu-erh pressed into bamboo tubes. Mighty and rich tea soup reminds us its great power and true origin. It's making is not masterly but back in 2004, when LBZ was not that which is today, they did no care much about good tea processing. In spite of this one could taste and have a feeling how LBZ could develop in almost 10 years of storing. Stored in Taiwan.

Lao Ban Zhang from the Bamboo Tube

5 stars 5.0 This review helped: 0 / 0

Tea was tightly pressed into bamboo, so it is very compact. I am steeping the first infusion for 20s after rinsing. Wet leaves smell distinctly like overripe fruit. Although it is a 9-year-old tea, the scent is pleasantly fresh. The first brew is slightly sweet with a soft astringency on the tongue. Hui Gan. I can feel start of cha qi. The second infusion, full ripe flavor, very fruity, slight bitterness in the aftertaste. Third infusion - very full bodied taste, complex flavor, bitterness is fading away, very strong Hui Gan. Fourth infusion - there are menthol tones in the smell of wet leaves and also in the infusion. You can sense the cooling effect in the mouth. Bitterness in the aftertaste is gone now, remains a pleasant astringency and sense of dryness on the tongue. The fifth infusion - the taste is still very rich, complex, full-bodied. The sixth infusion - I forget my tea when writing e-mails and steeped for about 2 minutes :-( very full of flavor, bitterness is back, strong taste of menthol …but liquor is still drinkable :-) ... 7th, 8th, 9th, 11th and 12th infusion – still giving tasty brews. It was very nice tea time, a great experience. I am pleased beyond measure and I am giving 5 stars.

7g, water 95°C, rinse 10s – 20s, 10s, 15s, 20s, 25s, 2min, 45s, 1min, 2min, 3min, 4min, 5min

Quotes - Pu-erh


„Depending on the desired product and speed, from quickest and tightest to slowest and loosest, pressing can be done by a lever press, which was operated by hand for tight pressings and has largely been replaced by the modern hydraulic press.“

Quotes

„Longjing tea was granted the status of Gong Cha, or Imperial tea, in Qing Dynasty by Chinese emperor Kangxi. According to the legend, Kangxi's grandson Qianlong visited West Lake during one of his famous holidays.
He went to the Hu Gong Temple under the Lion Peak Mountain (Shi Feng Shan) and was presented with a cup of Longjing tea. In front of the Hu Gong Temple were 18 tea bushes. Emperor Qianlong was so impressed by the Longjing tea produced here that he conferred these 18 tea bushes special imperial status. The trees are still living and the tea they produce is auctioned annually for more money per gram than gold.“
