2023 Yunnan Sourcing "Lao Man'e Village" Ripe Pu-erh Tea Cake
This is purely Lao Man'e village ripe pu-erh tea harvested in spring 2022 and then wet piled in the late summer of 2022.
Entirely Lao Man'e old plantation material from Lao Man'e village in the Bu Lang mountains. Lao Man'e is a village in the Bu Lang Mountain range, not far from Lao Ban Zhang and also quite near Jie Liang village. Lao Man'e tea is something in between the extreme bitterness of Jie Liang tea and the bitterness with fast and sweet huigan of Lao Ban Zhang tea.
This is a very strong tasting ripe tea with a creamy thick taste and feel to it. It's very infusable going many rounds before losing its powerful taste and aroma. With age it will become more infusable, more complex and more aromatic. The cha qi is all enveloping, but not overpowering. The tea settles into the mouth and body in a very nice way.
