From PuerhShop.com

2009 has so far been reported as a good year for Pu-erh teas, and even an inexpensive offering like this cake harvested in early Spring from Bulang area is a worthwhile product.

Old Man’e is known for its similarity to Old Banzhang in terms of taste, bitter and strong, so sometime when you see a tea labeled as Old Banzhang but less in cost, it is likely from Old Man’e. Old Man’e village is very close to Old Banzhang village, its tea has been sold as Old Benzhang tea all time.

The first thing that surprised me about this sample was the lack of bitterness despite the vendor description of it being bitter and strong. Maybe it has mellowed out that much if it was written in 2009 or it may be that my sample came from the hardest bottom center of the cake which is not opening up that much despite repeated brewing. Regardless the end result is a more mild sheng puerh that was nice drinking as a free sample but not one that I have any plans on buying after getting to try it.
