A very good surprise...06/01/2020 ByBeverly Maynard I had been drinking coffee regularly and thought this tea might be an interesting alternative on occasion. Much to my surprise, I quickly acquired a fondness for it and now I rarely drink coffee. Very big surprise indeed! In fact I love having 3 or 4 cups throughout my morning and afternoon sometimes and appreciate how each be brew of the same leaves is a somewhat different from the last and yet consistently delicious! My body seems to ask for this tea now and I welcome the health benefits that I believe it can have. The simple quick way to brew the tea is a pleasure too, part of my tea time pleasure. Thanks to Lisa Seeâ€™s book, The Teagirl of Hummingbird Laneâ€ť I was very intrigued and Iâ€™m so glad she recommended Bana Tea!!! Thank you Our responseThank you, Beverly, that pu-erh tea now is part of your daily routine.
Bana Teas06/23/2022 ByOleeta Igar Hello. Iâ€™m very glad to do a review. I purchased the 200gm pur-erh tea brick. I tried a sampler about a year or so ago and loved it. This tea was in the sampler. I first thought this tea was too expensive, but you can get many servings from it making it a good value for your money. Also, my cholesterol has come down substantially. Adding the tea is the only thing Iâ€™ve done differently. My doctor wants me to keep doing whatever Iâ€™m doing. I havenâ€™t told her about the tea yet. Weâ€™ll see what the numbers are when I see her in August. This is a delicious full bodied tea you can drink every day. Youâ€™ll not be disappointed!! Our responseThat's great! I hope your August numbers are just as good, or better. Thank you for telling us that.
The Classic11/03/2020 ByBeena R My family was introduced to Puâ€™er tea on a trip to Yunnan province a few years ago. We brought back a lot of tea with us and when that got over, I started looking around for a source in the US. Found Bana tea company through Lisa Seeâ€™s wonderful book and recently ordered a sampler pack of different teas and this one came closest to what I had in Kunming. The Simply Classic is a very good tea and I would recommend it highly and will definitely buy it again. Our responseThank you for your trust and the nice review. We appreciate it.
A solid everyday drinker08/12/2020 ByBronson Dowd This is a pretty nice cake and definitely a solid deal for the price. It is not the most complex of pu-erhs, with consistent woody notes across most brews that are almost reminiscent of rooibos. I like the flavor for sure, but it doesn't go on any of the wild detours in taste from brew to brew that I really love in a ripe pu-erh. Our responseThank you for your honest and thoughtful review.
Lovely tea04/07/2020 ByJoan Powers I love my ripe Pu-erh tea brick. It's a little ritual that adds to the whole process of drinking tea. The rich dark red color repeats up to three potfuls and then becomes an amber elixir. I drink it hot and cold. Wonderful.
Our responseSo glad you like it.
terrif everyday puerh10/25/2021 ByEdmond Gaible The simply classic brick is a terrific no-frills or everyday puerh tea. Not too expensive, it's nevertheless woody, slightly mossy, with a decent aroma and a lovely dark-brown color. I've used 3-5 g to brew 3-4 large cups. Our responseThank you for your nice review.
