Ban Zhai Pu-erh, Vintage 2008


Brewing guidelines:

Gaiwan: 5-7 grams per 100ml of water, the first several infusion at 90C degree (190F) for 10 seconds; later infusions for 15-20 seconds


The 2008 Ban Zhai tea is completely created from the tea obtained from the Bu Lang Mountain site of Ban Zhang village. In recent years, Ban Zhang tea has had a negative reputation as a tea too strong and bitter. However, the tea is expected to improve in quality as the aging process proceeds. Aging transforms Ban Zhai tea into a distinct and desirably textured tea.
