Da Ye ZhongTea
Banzhang is one of the most famous and desirable growing regions for pu’er in the Chinese domestic market, which has subjected Banzhang tea to major price fluctuation in past years. This year, a combination of a weaker Chinese economy and a major multi-million dollar ad campaign coming out of Jingmai region has shifted the focus and brought Banzhang prices down. This is an opportunity to acquire and age true Banzhang tea, blended and pressed by award-winning master Li Zhengxing, with over forty years of experience. Even with less than a year of age, this tea is already showing the signature nutty flavor of Banzhang. We are excited to hold onto a few cakes and see them grow in complexity and depth over the next couple years.
'Most pu’er does become more complex over time. Astringency mellows out, darker and richer flavors come through. Textural complexities become more pronounced. Starting with an intriguing young pu’er of high quality with lots of textures and flavors at play will increase your chances of graceful aging.'
