Earthy + Sweet

[Laoman'e 2018] Ancient Tree Ripe Pu'er

Recommended for experienced ripe pu-erh lovers looking for robust and bold flavors that are more than the usual earthy flavors of ripe pu-erh

Laoman'e (or Lao Man'e) Ancient Tree pu'er is one of the most prized teas. Tea trees in Laobanzhang trace their heritage to Laoman'e though the different terroir produces a robust contrast in flavor.
