This tea is flavorful and bold and has a nice sweet finish. In time, this tea is expected to become mellow but savory.

This tea offers a rich mouth-feel and a quick and long-lasting "hui gan" (return sweetness). Enjoy the fragrance and briskness of this young raw pu-erh. 

Sweet Rice Scent Ripe Pu-erh (Ripe pu-erh - 2016 vintage)
A unique plant indigenous to Yunnan called "Sweet Rice Leaf" was added during the production of this ripe pu-erh, thus imparting a warming and sweet rice scent to this tea.

Made from arbor trees over 300-years-old, this tea is thick, savory, and smooth.

Beginner Fine Tea Drinker 02/16/2020
By Teresa Raque
The sampler was a perfect beginner's pack as it introduced me to 7 different teas at a reasonable price. At $27 it would also make a nice gift. You get about 2 servings per tea (14 servings) but something I didn't know you can get up to 10 brews per serving!! The Raw seems lighter in color and taste than the Ripe but I enjoyed them all. I boiled water on the stove, used thermometer to get correct water temp. I tried it with mountain water but our local water is very good so I noted no difference. Other locals may not have as good as tap water so.....spring/mountain water. I will order again from this company as I believe it can be trusted. I found the company recommended at the end of the book "The Tea Girl From Hummingbird Lane" by Lisa See. If this author suggested it I thought it must be reputable b/c like most Americans we are skeptical of the quality and safety of Chinese digestible. I take the time out to relax and enjoy the tea-this is the best way-savor and relax.
Our responseThank you so much for your nice review - we appreciate it. We are so glad to hear you enjoyed the teas and that you take time out to relax and savor tea.

Nice Variety of Pu-erh 06/21/2020
By Dennis Li
Received the package as displayed on Bana website. The sampler would make a nice gift as it is carefully packed, handy informative brochure, descriptive list of pu-erh tea therein, all held by a lovely sack sealed with a ribbon. You can make 2 servings of each tea to test the flavor, before purchasing more or if a newbie to acquaint what pu-erh is all about. My favorite teas were the Bana Tea Company Limited Edition, The Taste of Menghai, Bulang Old Tree and Sweet Clarity. After tasting the teas from the Sampler, bought more of the Limited Edition. After tryng a second time, the tea was sweet, have diffferent flavor notes and mild. Can drink all day.
Our responseThank you so much for the nice and detailed review. We truly appreciate it.

Outstanding introduction to pu-erh tea! 05/13/2021
By Walter E.
I am new to the world of pu-erh tea and gong fu brewing. This sampler was the perfect way for me to start my journey, as it is well-curated and covers a broad range of types of pu-erh. Different as they are from one another, I loved every tea in the sampler. (On each tea's web page, Linda Louie includes recommended temperatures, rinse times, and times for each brewing. I found all of this extremely helpful in bringing out the best of each tea.) The sampler is well worth the cost, and I look forward to purchasing larger quantities of some of these teas.

Our responseThank you so much for the kind words and welcome to the world of pu-erh. May you continue to have a lot of fun exploring the varied flavors pu-erh tea offers.

Delighted with the Pu-erh Tea Sampler 02/04/2020
By Ilene Winokur
I read about the Bana Tea Company when I read the Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane for my book club. I decided to order the sampler, so we could experience the tea we read about in the book. I loved how each of the sample teas is labeled with type and date. It was also helpful to have the small guidebooks that are sent with the tea. After book club, my husband and I tried one of the teas. It's amazing that you can use the leaves multple times and the flavor is still excellent! I am very satisfied and look forward to tasting other teas from the sampler.
Our responseSo glad to hear that you enjoyed the pu-erh sampler. Welcome to the world of pu-erh - it is a fun journey.

First Pu-erh experience 03/13/2019
By Barbara Mofield
This is a perfect and affordable introduction to pu-erh tea. I was able to sample a variety of teas and discover that I enjoy the deep,earthy flavor of ripe pu-erh - smooth, complex and lingering without a hint of bitterness. I was also pleased with how quickly I received my order.
The only slightly confusing thing is that the samples are 8 grams, but the brewing instructions are for 5 grams of tea.
I use 9 oz or about 250 ml of water to brew each packet of tea and I'm a happy sipper.
Thanks, Bana!
