Pu-erh from Dong Banshan has a high floral fragrance similar to that of jasmine flowers, with fairly subtle intricacies in its taste. It is most represented by its initial vegetal taste, which soon transfers to a sweet bread flavour in later steeps. 

More on the local geography: Mengku town is located at the most northern region of Shuangjiang county, under Lincang city in southwestern Yunnan. The total area of the town is 475.3 sq km; two mountains, one river and one flatland characterize its geographical features. Nanmeng river flows in between Ma’an and Bangma mountains. Ma’an mountain sits on the east-bank of river - the locals prefer calling it Dong Banshan, meaning east-bank mountain. Similarly, Bangma mountain is known as Xi Banshan (west-bank mountain) as it is located on the west-bank.
