Man Zhuan 2012 Spring
Man Zhuan 蛮砖 is one of the 6 famous tea mountains of ancient times. This cake is made from 100-300 year old tea trees growing at 1,250m elevation. The liquor is an attractive bright honey color, and the thick soup creates a smooth, rounded mouthfeel. The aroma is pleasingly sweet, with that signature floral scent of Yiwu teas. But the flavour is most impressive, full of grass & fresh hay, quite bitter when pushed, but with almost no astringency. This multi dimensional taste suggests it will age well. One of the highlights of this tea is the huigan, which leaves a persistent sweetness in the throat, even after 5 infusions. Read more about Man Zhuan on our blog. This limited production run of 42 cakes was completely hand picked, hand processed & stone pressed in Yiwu.
