From Teaurchin

Our 2013 Lao Man E is a blend of bitter and sweet trees growing between 1300-1400m elevation. After producing sweet LME for the past 2 years, we decided to amp up the bitterness this year. Our most powerful LaoManE to date. The dry leaves give off a delicious aroma of fresh watermelon.

I came across this tea while sorting through a lot of pu samples. I prepared about 5.5 grams and steeped them for a brief 5-10 seconds. I usually use shorter steep times with LMEs. The wet leaves have a pleasant nose that brings smoke and fruits to mind. Surprisingly, the liquor isn’t as bitter as I had expected, considering its origin. There is a heavy ku but its definitely tolerable. Nice hui gan and mouthfeel. There is what I find to be a charming astringency in this tea. IMO, this tea can definitely be enjoyed today but giving it a few years may be required for those who enjoy softer pus. 82/100

This sheng is kind of strange. My first steep had a bitterness that reminded me of cocoa…but it is definitely a SHENG so it is really weird. Like, the liquor is a translucent amber…how is this giving me cocoa notes?

2nd steep also bitter, but more fruity. I will have to be more careful with this one in the future- maybe lower temp and shorter steeps…I do feel like the flavors lying under the bitterness are quite interesting!
