From Hojo Tea

The characteristic of Ma An Shan raw pu-erh tea is its overwhelmingly strong body. It reminds me of the Lao Ban Zhang raw pu-erh tea. In addition, this tea gives strong after taste too. Thanks to the full body character, the flavour of tea widely spread in the mouth and gives roundness and sweetness that linger for a long time. The taste of Ma An Shan is 3 dimensional. In addition to the remarkable characteristics, the tea was well-processed. The pan-frying process was perfectly managed and it gives very pure and clear vegetal flavour. As the tea is still very fresh, you may think it is a white tea or green tea when you drink it for the first time.
Ma An Shan is situated in the west of Lincang. It belongs to the county called Zhenkang where it is facing to the Myanmar border. The Ma An Shan has gained some attention in a past several years. In fact, the price of Ma An Shan tea has been gradually increasing by far. However, due to extremely remote location, the price escalation is quite moderate comparatively. It is not as crazy situation as that of Lao Bang Zhan, Bu Lang Shan or Bing Dao area.

Dry leaves had a strongly and pleasing sweet/green aroma. Sorry that I could not specifically describe; sometimes I felt that it smelled like a sugary candy or some sweet-ripe fruit. I brewed the tea at a bit lower temperature (90 C) and used more amount of leaves (10 g/100 ml). The color of the liquor was yellow. The mouth-feel was very smooth, pleasant and mouthwatering. It’s not a “bitterness turn to sweetness” tea but like drinking a soft white one. The flavor contained a slight honey sweetness, and no bitterness, smokiness and astringency. The slight sweetness and particularly sweet aroma coating on my palate, mineral-spiciness on my tongue lasted more than half an hour. After 10 steeps, there was no sweetness but the tea soup, with a bit more bitterness and astringency, still was aromatic and drinkable.
