From Bana Tea Company

This tea brick, sold exclusively in the U.S. by Bana Tea Company, has been traditionally stored in Hong Kong for over thirty years before it was purchased and stored in Yunnan. The tea has no paper wrapping and came in packs of four. After decades of aging, this tea has become very round, silky and smooth. It possesses a rose powder scent with a hint of ginseng notes. The pronounced sweetness of this tea is unique among other aged Pu-erh of its class. It is a tea to be savored on special occasions.

The taste profile of this Pu’erh was so unique compared to other aged Shengs that it initially put me off. However, once I got used to the unique sweetness and rosy flavor of this tea, I came to enjoy it and added it to my collection.

Its complexity is medium compared to some of the best shengs, but it has a smooth / silky feel to it, a surprisingly sweet flavor and a noticeable rose scent. One of the things I like most about this tea is the really low stimulation effect / caffeine… it’s a tea to relax. I also enjoy how clear this tea is, and it has a really clean feeling when you savor it.

I view this as an excellent tea to add to a collection if you feel like trying something different once in a while. It is so light, has a calming / relaxing effect almost like chamomile tea, and a delicate rose perfume-like scent. This would be a great tea to drink before bedtime.

However, I wouldn’t drink this on a daily basis, as the taste profile is so far off what we’re used in aged raw Pu’erh.
