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.
