From Bana Tea Company

When I visited Nannuo Mountain in 2009, I was impressed with how sweet and pure the local spring water was. This tea possesses the exact qualities as the Nannuo local spring water – pure, crisp, and sweet. Tea from Nannuo Mountain is known for its softness, fragrance and its quick “hui tian” (returning sweet). This tea also has a savory quality with a the flavor that remains in the mouth and throat for a long time. This is a tea with great aging potential and should be added to any Pu-erh collector’s collection.

I started with several chunks rather than loose leaves, so the first steep was kind of weak. The taste started out as straw with a hint of leather but in the next few steeps the leather became much more prominent. It also became quite astringent. Chewy texture. Long finish, and I’m feeling some cha qi. Later steeps were sightly bitter and more astringent than I like, but with decent flavor. Not bad, but not my style.

Digging into some old Bana tea samples. Their stuff is typically quite expensive, but they offer a nice sampler pack. This tea has very strong qi. It is a light color and has a crisp and refreshing flavor. It’s nice, kind of soft so to speak, with bitterness coming through in later steepings. It’s hard for me to tell how a tea like this will age, but it is good.
