The Ban Zhan pu-erh tea cake comes from the mountainous regions of Ban Zhai, where many antique tea trees grow. This specific terroir results in an astringent tea. It is bold and deeply desired by tea experts and tea lovers. The tea is characteristically bitter and yet not harshly so. During the aging process, the fruity concentration increases and becomes sweeter.
