Taste characteristics:
What sets this tea apart from other young Pu-erh teas is its unique lotus fragrance. When brewed lightly, the result is an enjoyable cup of smooth and subtly scented tea. Brew it longer and this tea can offer a rich and thick tea broth with lasting flavor. Made with young arbor trees, this tea is a perfect choice for Pu-erh beginners who want to try a fine cake for a reasonable price.

I’m still trying to work my way through these Bana Tea samples I got in early January!

This is excellent – for a 2007 sheng it is very mellow. I steeped this in a small infuser mug this morning. It’s woodsy & slighty earthy, very mild with a sweeter aftertaste than a lot I have tried. I am guessing it is the wild arbor because I seem to be having good luck with those lately. I have no idea what this would taste like aged but I can only imagine it would be even sweeter and more delicious?

I let the second steep go for a bit longer than I would with a tea of this type. The color got to be quite a dark orange and I was a bit nervous. The flavor got a bit more intensified but is still very nice with a woody, almost plummy aftertaste. They say this is a good cake for beginners and I would agree with that assessment. I just checked the price and it is $45 for the cake which is more than I want to spend but it is seriously tempting….

I recommend checking this out… not astringent, bitter or sour, just seriously nice and relaxing.
