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.

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

We brewed up a lovely thick aromatic amber broth after just about two years in the storage, this tea has demonstrated a great ageing potential, a hidden gem.

This is the first Lao Man’e tea I’ve tried, so I’m unsure whether or not to recommend it. It came at a very cheap price, and puerhshop is not always known for having the best examples of most teas. This one was, in line with the region’s reputation, pretty bitter. It was not really astringent or unpleasant to drink, though perhaps in part due to the age on it. Most of what I got from this tea was a bitter vegetal note, with very little sweetness backing it up. I got no qi or anything off of this tea.

I’ll have to try other LME teas before I can pass relevant relative judgement on this tea, but it was pretty “meh” all around.

Genuine LME is fantastic and is known for off-the-charts qi and complex bitters. I have 2 decent PS brand Lincang cakes, but that vendor is known for their fakes.
