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


„bing; 饼 - cake. Something shaped like a cake. 茶饼; cha bing - tea cake. This is a cake of tea that has been pressed by hand or machine into a compact form. Easy for transporting and storage. The more tightly pressed it is, the slower the tea will age. They can range in size from 100 gms to several kilograms.“

Quotes

„Pu'er Tea; 普洱茶. That 'Puer Tea' was given this name suggests that historically this kind of tea - post fermented camelia sinensis assamica must have come from the south and west of Puer for there to have been any sense in transporting it through that city. The majority of good Puer tea still comes from the Xishuangbanna region. Puer County itself was not an historically important tea producing region.“
