I have truly gone astray into the world of Sheng Puer after erichbenoit was beyond generous in sending me samples of the tea worlds finest treasures. This one is intense. Intense in aroma. Intense in flavor. My mouth is wet with its beautiful flavor. A flavor that seems to linger endlessly. The energy I am feeling is beyond description. This is serious tea. Very serious. As you can see by my typing skills being totally impaired.
Lao Man E 2012 Spring
This cake is made from specially selected sweet tea trees near Lao Man E village of the Bulang mountain range. It still has the characteristic bitterness of a Bulang Puer, but with an additional sweet top note that makes it more accessible to non masochists. Completely hand picked and hand processed in Lao Man E, this cake is still the most beautiful looking cake we’ve seen, with robust leaves & fat, shiny buds covered in downy white hairs.
