This episode Denny and James drink a Jingmai semi-aged pu’erh from Bana Tea. A well-balanced brew with a really nice huigan.

If you’re living in your parents’ basement you probably can’t afford this tea! $600 per cake!
Interesting session. It’s definitely way out of my price range. I would be interested to see you two review more affordable teas, like more of the aged stuff from Yunnan Sourcing and Chawangshop.
I think leaving the tea ware in soap water for a week or so wouldn’t hurt. 🙂
Dragon Tea House is selling this tea on EBAY for only $50. I don’t see how Bana can charge $600
Please do not be a cheap fool.
Specifically, the HeShihua line of tea isn’t actually a particularly cheap one. And if you saw one four fifty bucks, and from 2004, it might behoove you to *check* things. For example, DTH explicitly does not say Heshihua. For another example, there is at least one mispelling of the romanization Yunnan *Chatsu* Pincha written on the bing.
And anyone can look on the web and see what a correct version of the stupid tea would look like, if you wanna refuse to believe that Banatea’s own image is incorrect!
Dragon Tea House is obviously selling a non-Heshihua tea meant to fool suckers like you. And if you get mad, they’ll just say “hey, we didn’t say it was, and you can see howzat wrapper is different!” “Caveat Emport!!!!1!!”
Please do longstanding members of this community the due benefits of at least *some* sort of expertise, ok?
That being said, BanaTea is very expensive, except for a few items here and there. Some of that is because at least one of their suppliers, Denong Tea is very expensive.
You could have told me before I bought ten bings!
