Recommended for green tea lovers looking to experience smooth and sweet green tea notes; experienced raw pu-erh lovers looking for pu-erh tea to drink now AND age for years to come

If you drink green tea daily, you'd already be familiar with the range of green tea flavor profiles: vegetal and grassy, marine and umami, or nutty and toasty. But did you know that raw pu'er (or pu-erh) is processed like green tea but has a unique nutty aroma?

Hailing from the historical Yiwu mountain range in Yunnan, this ancient tree raw pu'er is smooth and well-balanced with a lingering floral scent and a lightly roasted nut flavor. You can also pair it with Etorki, a semi-hard sheep's milk cheese from the Basque Region, or dark chocolate to bring out the savory nuttiness in the tea. This will be the perfect addition to your current green tea collection.

    Hi Patricia, Thank you for sharing your thoughts on our Yiwu 2018. We're sorry to hear that you found this tea bland for your palate. Yiwu raw pu-erh is known for its lasting sweet notes that are very elegant and can come across as subtle compared to ripe pu-erh and other dark teas. We recommend you try our [Anhua 2013] Blooming Golden Flower Brick tea for a bolder flavor profile for your palate. Thank you again for sharing, and let us know if we can help in any way! Kind Regards, Ella

    All day tea bliss

    Ripe pu'er has never been my cup of tea, but this raw pu'er is amazing, a welcome addition to my standard green and Yunnan black favorites. On a pu'er day, I apportion 6g, and steep it for 30 seconds in 8 oz water, 7-8 times over the course of the day. Every cup is excellent.

    Hi Jason, Thanks for the excellent review on our Wild Lao Raw Pu'er! We are delighted to hear that you enjoy our raw pu-erh, making it an addition to your classic favorites! Raw pu-erh has very different qualities compared to ripe pu-erh. So I encourage you to try other types of raw pu-erh, such as [Bulang 2017] Raw Pu’er. We hope to hear from you again in the future, and we wish you all the best in your 'Pu'er days' :)

    Full bodied golden, a little figgy, with a sweet grassiness

    A puerh, no doubt, but with a lightness of a green tea. Full bodied golden, a little figgy, with a sweet grassiness that came to full bloom on infusion 3rd.

    Real tea with a rich taste

    I started being more cognizant of the quality of my food last year, so was pleasantly surprised to find Mansa at my company's WeWork office. I didn't realize how various the quality of tea can be and was quite happy with both the look and taste of Mansa. It was smooth, tasty, and beautifully packaged. Looking forward to brewing my next cup.
