Taste characteristics:
This tea cake is one of the Yunnan Seven-son series manufactured by the China National Native Produce and Animal By-products Import & Export Corporation between 1970’s and 1990’s. To distinguish a Yunnan Seven-son teacake from another Seven-son teacake, tea vendors sometimes would give the cake a specific name, in this case “Dahuazi.

"Hua" rhymes with the Chinese character for smooth. The name Dahuazi describes the smoothness that this tea offers. Exceptionally clean, this 1996 ripe Pu-erh is pure and lush and leaves a soothing and lasting coolness that coats your mouth. The tea leaves are golden brown and brewed tea is bright and almost sparkling, both an indication of high-quality manufacturing. The tea sustains its richness even after the 10th infusion. This is a fine quality ripe Pu-erh that is hard to come by. Drink it all day long and you still will yearn for more.

I can't believe no one has reviewed this yet 01/02/2022

This tea is fantastic. It's rich and smooth, with a fruity body (but still with the woody undertones common in ripe pu'er teas). It was a great sipping choice for New Year's Day. It's now one of my two favorite ripe pu'er teas sold through Bana (the other is Enchantment of Ancient Trees, its flavor is different enough that I can't say that I love one more than the other).
Our responseI am so glad this tea was part of your New Year celebration. Cheers to 2022!

This is another tea I would say has an exceptionally smooth taste. It is almost as if the tea water tastes softer. I don't find this in every tea but this is so apparent to me. Another Puerh one needs to experience.
Our responseThank you, Laura, for your kind review. A well-aged pu-erh offers us a memorable sensory experience.
