Quick Overview:

A young but amazing tea brick consisting of tea leaves harvested in Lao Ban Zhang and compressed by a small boutique factory in Kunming.


A top quality ripe pu erh tea brick made Yunnan Da Ye Zhong leaves (large leaf varietal). It's dark shou pu erh with a smooth and rich flavour as a result of the special wet-piling post-fermentation process

The flavour is super smooth, yet exceptionally affordable for 200 grams (7 oz) of tea. Enjoy it right now as a daily drinker, or store it away for a few years to let it turn into 'gold'.

Jin Ban Zhang: The Name Explained

The Chinese name for this tea, as displayed on the packaging, is 'Jin Ban Zhang'. The first character 'jin / 金‘ means 'gold'. This name is given, because the block also consists of some golden buds. The latter two characters refer to its origin ‘ban zhang’

Our Lao Ban Zhang Price

This ripe ban zhang pu erh is purchased straight from one of the boutique factories at the source. That's why our specialised Yunnan sourcing experts are able to keep the price low for you by avoiding multiple layers of middle men. All pu erhs are first judged by us on taste and aroma, before they're launched in our online tea store.
