Type: Ripe Pu-erh (fermented)
Grade: 2-4
Production area: Lincang Prefecture, Yunnan Province

Taste characteristics:
If you like the Chang-an loose leaf and the Chang-an Lucky Coins, you will like this Chang-an brick even more. This is a collector’s edition because pressed leaves create a more stable aging condition for the leaves and are better able to retain their fragrance and character. This brick is made from old arbor trees and its production was closely supervised by Master Vesper Chan. The 2010 and 2011 editions of this tea have enjoyed great popularity in Hong Kong and China. Smooth and rich, this newer edition of Chang-an offers a bold full body with a subtle sweet aftertaste that lasts up to 10 infusions. This tea possesses all the necessary elements to be aged into a fine ripe Pu-erh tea in the coming years.

Bamboo Gift Box Available
For an additional $6, Bana is offering a lovely bamboo gift box (312g) made specifically for the Chang-an Brick. The lid is embellished with a handsome design. The lusterous box makes a perfect presentation for gift giving. Box cannot be sold separately. Total weight for box and brick is approx.762g = 27 oz.
