Which is not banna tea, and age is mostly a mellowing feature rather than wood. It's still an actual deal, even at it's higher price these days.
Some people have been happy with this: http://www.yunnansourcing.com/store/pro ... oduct=1994
A more basic lincang with more real woodiness, I think: http://www.bannacha.com/en/37-2003-mengku.html
