2019 Spring Lao Man'E Custom Blended Gushu 200g Cake - Sheng / Raw Puerh Tea :: FREE SHIPPING
Lao Man'E needs no introduction. This unassuming and relatively small village in Southern Yunnan packs a tea with more punch than most other villages combined. The experience hiding in these simple leaves is near legendary. Now this tea is definitely not for everyone. Lao Man'E is bitter and there's no getting around that.
Fun Fact: Lao Ma'E has 2 types of trees. They have sweet trees and bitter trees. ( hint: they're both bitter, but the bitterness in the sweet variety melts into a memorable throat sweetness. ) This cake is a special blend of both materials perfectly balanced to maximize the experience.
This material is packed with large, full leaves, with big hairy buds. These are really gorgeous leaves and even the dry aroma is thick and heavy. You can take a leaf material like this and use 1/4 what you would normally use in a gongfu session and they will give a full experience. Or you can go full gongfu and really experience these teas.
This is a full bodied blend, thickly aromatic, and yes definitely bitter. Inside that bitterness is a truly beautiful and layered tea experience awaiting exploration.
