$160.00 USD

Brand: Big Classic / Gu Ming Xiang

This is the fourth cake in the 2010 series of Bu Lang teas from Gu Ming Xiang tea factory. Made entirely from Spring 2010 tea picked from 200-300 year old trees from the village of Ban Pen. Ban Pen is a neighboring village to both Lao Ban Zhang and Lao Man'e. It's also inhabited by Bu Lang people who earn the majority of their living from tea.

Ban Pen teas are similiar in Ban Zhang teas in appearance, and also have some (but less) bitterness, a fast hui gan and very good staying power both in the mouth and the gaiwan.
