LaoManE(老曼峨) belongs to BuLang tea region located in MengHai county.
The most representable character is bitter taste which even keeps many tea lovers far away from this tea.
Even tough, there are still many tea lovers love the tea from here very much because of
Energizing tea strength
Lingering tea flavor
HuiGan(sweetness) on aftertaste
Thickness on tea liquid.
LaoManE has both bitter tea and sweet tea. But sweet tea is just called by local people because it is not as bitter as former one. When compare it with tea from other tea regions, it still has more obvious bitterness make you feel astonished.
I highly recommend this tea because I like it so much personally and also it has very clear characters during so many tea regions. Even to new comers, it is a good textbook like material for learning and enjoy puerh sheng cha, especially when these tea are purely made from GuShu(old tree) and these are growing on national forest plantation where has notable originality and well preserved natural environment.
*What I selected is bitterer tea from LaoManE.
Do you also have interest on bitter tea like me?
Welcome to have a look at another tea from ManXingLong(曼兴龙) which is also on my shelf.
If you like powerful, aggressive teas, this is nice! Classic citrussy claw feel at the back of the throat and definitely has some qi. It's expensive, but the sample is worth a shot, at least to get a feel for Laoman'e. I've had more mouth destroying Laoman'e before, but I thoroughly enjoyed this one :)
