I am thinking of putting in an order with Bana for the purpose of sampling this tea. Do people think it is worth trying?

I have never sampled tea that old before and it seemed like a good place to start.

Ah...well, understand that it's that cheap for a reason, then.

Honestly, the chances are, you'll be happier with http://www.banateacompany.com/pages/pue ... Scent.html

or

Not that I'm making guarantees, because I've not had these tea, specifically.

Or if you have not had it, just get two of http://www.themandarinstearoom.com/1985 ... h_p_1.html

It might be twice the price of that brick sample per gram, and at least five years younger, but I don't think you can go wrong with this.
