Bought this tea a while ago from Alexpress King Tea and am just now getting around to trying it. It has a fair amount of fermentation flavor. This flavor while I don’t use the term fishy, was less pleasant then some ripe teas. It lasted until around the fifth steep. There were a variety of sweet notes too. It was dark and rich in the first few steeps, even with notes of chocolate. It developed a nice flavor in the last few steeps. I would say notes of dates but that is an interpretation. This was, judging over ten steeps an excellent tea. If you just looked at the first two steeps it was not as good. It developed into something quite nice.

I steeped this ten times in a 120ml gaiwan with 9.7g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse and a 10 minute rest. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, and 1 min. If I had a desire to drink more tea I’m sure I could get another few steeps out of this one. King Tea seems to be out of this one. I have tried a few of this brand from King Tea and they have been good. They are, however, an example of a Chinese company trying to sell with a famous name. After all this tea from the Menghai Banzhang Tea Company doesn’t actually have any Lao Banzhang tea in it, they just use the name. I think, however, that they make a fairly tasty ripe. King Tea has other ripe available from this company.

That’s actually the same tea. I looked for that and couldn’t find it. He raised the price by $20 after I bought it. The link I have for my purchase doesn’t work. Looks like the same wrapper. King Tea on Aliexpress is an excellent vendor. I’ve had a couple of problems but he handled them properly.

He has an astonishing 4000 puerhs in stock. I think he buys off of Taobao after you purchase from him. Carrying 4000 items in his warehouse would make him a bigger operation than Yunnan Sourcing and White2Tea combined. I don’t think his operation is actually that big.

That’s very interesting to know.
