OMG, there is a tea that costs more than a LBZ (Lao Banzhang)!
This very rare premium sun dried maocha is made of genuine Mansong big tree material harvested in 2010 Spring.
The liquor shows light yellow color, with good clarity. Take a sip, let your taste buds soak in the soothing, silky liquor that has a malty sweetness and ripply aftertaste. There are many "layers" in this complex tea; it is suggested you use 6-7 grams leaf, take time to experiment different brewing length, water temperature.
It's challenge to distinguish a great tea unless you got many to compare, and many years in drinking experience if it is $ 17 worthy, you be the judge. All I can say is that the aroma is grand - sort of royal scent, nothing comes close.
Mansong tea is called "Crown Jewels of Yibang, a tribute tea", more on this tea at here: http://www.puerhshop.com/blog/?itemid=401
