Renowned origin harvest by a small producer

Lao Ban Zhang is one of the, if not the most sought after origin for premium pu’er. Rather like pursuing a rare wine, people don’t expect a sweet or easy palatial experience but one with character and strength. The tea is known for its long lasting linger. Some refer to it as “cha qi”.

A really good one from the “old estate” costs a crazy fortune nowadays. Yet one from a good fringe area by a small workshop can be a lot more accessible. Let us know how you like this compared with other pu’ers.

Taste profile

Clean, refreshing and smooth aroma with a sweet, floral overtone. Distinct accent of raisin. Undertone of camphor and American ginseng. Crisp, malty body. Light sweetness counterbalanced with tints of astringency and the bitterness of the root Mongolian milkvetch ( aka huang qi, a herbal tonic ). Cooling aftertaste. Good hui gan.
