Type: Ripe Pu-erh (fermented)
Grade: 1-3
Production area: Menghai, Xishuangbanna Prefecture, Yunnan Province

Taste characteristics:
Using leaves picked from tea trees between 100 to 200-years-old, and adding an infusion made from Agarwood and Sweet Rice Scent Leaf, this tea is smooth and mellow without the strong earthy taste that is typical in young ripe pu-erhs. The addition of Agarwood and Sweet Rice Scent Leaf offers a sweet and woodsy finish, contributing to a feeling of calm and contentment.

“2019” and “Still Love You” are homophones in Mandarin. Master Vesper Chan produced this tea to express his gratitude to his supporters for the past 30 years since he started his tea business.

A must have Pu Erh for my collection 03/14/2021
By Dale D Ehrenberg
On my second 100gr cake. And I still love it too!

It's rich liquor has that earthy, mushroom meaty flavor with a trace of dark stone fruits and cut grass. The nose presents damp earth and forest after a rain plus cut hay along with hints of stone fruits and a dark caramel.

While this tea might not take you on a trip of introspection and exploration, it's a warm and comforting embrace that repeatedly draws you back sip after sip and cup after cup.

Another Sweet Rice Leaf Ripe Pu'er 07/14/2021
By Margo Krindel
This tastes a lot like the Sweet Rice Scent Ripe Pu'er also sold by Bana, probably because Sweet Rice Scent Leaf is one of the ingredients, though the 'sweet rice' texture is less thick in this one. Personally, I prefer either the fuller texture of the 'Sweet Rice Scent' pu'er or the ripe pu'ers without 'sweet rice scent' but I appreciate this tea for adding variety to my pu'er collection. It's nice to drink a pu'er that's different.
Our responseIn addition to "sweet rice leaf," this tea is also blended with Agarwood. That's why the sweet rice scent is less thick in this one. Glad you enjoy having more variety to your pu-erh collection.

A beautiful tea that's a joy to drink 01/08/2020
By Colette Bennett
I just started my journey into discovering Pu-erh teas last year, and Still Love You is one of the best ones I have tried by far. Not only is the tea itself delicious and full-bodied, but you can steep this tea many times in a session and get a rich flavor. The Sweet Rice aspect is gentle and very pleasant. This cake is also extremely affordable, especially for its quality!
Our responseThank you for taking the time to let us know your kind feedback. This tea is rich, yet well-balanced between the leaves, the agarwood, and the sweet rice scent leaves.

when I was younger I wanted to try mud cakes with actual mud. not that chocolate nonsense. here is a tea that satisfies me. it is like the best tasting, softest mud gathered by a forest junkie who really knows their stuff.

mild, damp earth, hermit juice, very comfortable

Our responseWhat a story! This tea contains Agarwood, which is very calming.

Bana has wonderful tea! 07/14/2020
By Joyce Czarny
I have been through 1.5 of these tea cakes and have another one to pleasure through too -- Pu-erh Tea is balancing. I enjoy this tea cake very much. Still Love You is an appropriate name and the taste is very mellow. I bought three of these!
Our responseIt brings a smile on my face to know that I have a tea that you like so much.

Like a nice red wine 09/26/2019
