Located just 2 kilometers from the well-known Ban Zhang village, Ban Pan is now coming into its own and demanding much attention. Local tea merchants profess that if Ban Zhang is known as the King of Puerhs, then Ban Pan should certainly be called the Uncle of the King. Although he may not as powerful as the King himself, the Uncle is not one to be disrespected. Ban Pan tea produces a bright, deep yellowish cup with slightly bitter tannins which transform it’s astringency into magical sweetness. The finish is continuous but gentle. Again, this is not a Sheng Puerh that should be taken lightly, time and respect is required to understand it, so do not be afraid to experiment as you brew and discover.
