2018 Manzhuan Loose Leaf Sheng / Raw Puerh Tea 100g
Manzhuan wooed us hard this year. Every tea tasting we had someone took out an amazing Manzhuan. Every session the experience got better and better. We knew we had to get to Manzhuan. We were floored with the tea that we found in a remote corner of this amazing region. Manzhaun is one of the original 6 famous mountains and with tea like this it is easy to see why!
- Prefecture: Xishuangbanna

This material is on the softer side. The aromas are floral but subdued and delicate. This tea shines in body and peaceful energy. This tea is thick and stays thick through the steeps. It's a real pleasure to drink and just seems to always hit the spot whatever mood we're in.
We kept some of this material loose because we wanted you to have the option of trying it both compressed and as maocha. We still have some of this material pressed into cakes for sale here.
Use 5-10 grams of leaves and brew with 75-150ml ( 2.5-5oz ) of water at or near boiling. Rinse once for a few seconds. Start with quick steeps under 10s. With each re-steep adjust the steep time to your taste.
