From Bana Tea Company

Chang-an Ripe Pu-erh (2010 vintage—spring harvest)

Weight: 100 grams (3.5 oz) loose leaf
Type: Ripe Pu-erh (fermented)
Grade: 2-4
Production area: Lincang, Yunnan Province

“Chang” and “an” are two Chinese characters that translate to mean “long term stability.” Good health is a key ingredient for one’s stability and tea drinking is an integral part to achieving good health.

Unlike most ripe Pu-erh, Chang-an Ripe Pu-erh is made from the Spring harvest of old-growth arbor trees. Hence, the tea is thicker, richer and more nuanced than most ripe Pu-erh. Due to its affordable price at this time, it makes a very good tea for everyday consumption. This tea is expected to become mellower and sweeter over time. This is a perfect time to stock up this tea and take advantage of its low price.

Having a sample of this tea from Bana this afternoon.
Steeping method: xiying teapot after doing a quick rinse

First infusion: 45 seconds. earthy, slightly musty, a hint of smoke and bitterness. Shiitake mushroom aroma. hmmm

Second infusion: 60 seconds. Color is now darker. The tea has a very round mouthfeel and whatever bitterness I was sensing is now gone. The liquor is a gorgeous reddish brown. The flavor is very mild and soothing, woodsy. A tiny bit of sweetness present. Somewhat lighter in flavor than some other shus I have tried recently and a bit uninspired in terms of flavor, but definitely no offensive aromas/flavors.

Third infusion: Sweetness and richness is increasing with no noticeable loss of flavor. I am getting a bit of fruitiness along with some more wood sensations.

Not my favorite shu from Bana so far but still very nice, I enjoyed trying it. I think this would benefit from a few more years of aging perhaps.

I’m so glad you’re reviewing all of these Bana ones. I enjoy your puerh tasting notes. I’ve still not got the palate to pick up the nuances in it. But being able to read good notes like yours makes it easier to recognize what one should be looking for.
