From Tribute Tea Company

Tucked deep in the Nan Nuo mountains lies Bangma – a town entirely populated by the ethnic Hani minority. A history steeped in tea culture and an abundance of ancient tea trees contribute to highly-coveted annual puerh harvest. Centuries old tea trees spend the majority of the year developing their potent nutrients in preparation for the annual harvest.

This incredibly rare and superbly smooth leaf is only plucked once in the Spring, when its vegetal potency is at its peak. Year after year, prices continue to rise for this prized Bangma leaf, as word spreads of its smoothness and ageing quality. A nutty aroma of pistachio pairs well with a sweet, shiitake flavor, then finished with a subtle afterthought of juniper…

Very limited supply! Sourced exclusively for us by the famous explorer and author of The Ancient Tea Horse Road, Jeff Fuchs, who maintains a healthy supply of Bang Ma in his personal collection…

Notes: pistachio, shiitake, juniper

Infusion: 200ºF / 93ºC for 30 seconds

Origin: Bangma, Nannuo Mountains, Yunnan Province, China

I got this out to brew tonight. Time to get after things again. It has been a hiatus but time to brew again. I got 10 grams of this out. The leaf is very full, not many broken pieces just good looking dry leaf. Dry leaf has a musky, and damp grass scent to it. I gave a quick rinse and let it sit a bit to open up. I brewed in the Gaiwan for this one short steeps to start. The brew is a light golden. Taste is much thicker than the brew. It seems to be an almost cross between Lao Man ’e and Mang fei. It has a great punch to it. Some bitterness can be expected as it is still young. It takes a few sips to get the full effect. The bitter and bite seems to go and lingers with evergreen and wood notes in the background. Very clear brew on this and the strength of this makes me enjoy it much.

Glad to see you are back in the Saddle of Storage and Sheng. May the gut bombs be with you.

No bombs just some taste buds that have gone without a while.
