    Amazing

    You can tell that Mansa puts a lot of thought into its packaging. It was beautiful to open up the package once I received it. Being a newbie in the tea world, I thought it was wonderful to see how much information is given to the consumer. There is information about the origin of the tea, it's taste characteristics, and how to brew the tea. The teas themselves taste wonderful. I recommend the Taste of First Step to anyone who is wanting to learn more about aged teas, or is wanting to try several different teas before buying in bigger quantities.

    Perfect

    This was the perfect sampler to open my eyes to the proper way of drinking puer tea. Love that they come packaged with the tea perfectly measured out so it takes all the guesswork out of it. A great intro to puer tea!

    Thoughtful, Amazing Sampler!

    I’m no tea expert, but having tried out this sampler I’d love to be one. The two samplers I ordered came in clean, lovely packaging, with a cute handwritten note. The flavors are lovely—each selection distinct, with thoughtful trivia and guidelines on each tea bag. Thanks to Mansa’s amazing attention to detail it’s do easy to enjoy the tea exactly the way it’s meant to be. Will definitely purchase again, for myself and as fantastic gifts throughout the winter! Way to go Ashley and team!!♥️

    Opened a New World for Me

    I am a big coffee drinker (I make my own) and never really had been into tea, but this sampler from Mansa really helped me discover the amazing beauty of aged tea! I honestly never appreciated how complex and delicious aged tea could be; Kudos to Mansa for curating the perfect varieties so that customers can ease into the wide spectrum of high end age tea. I would highly recommend this to anyone that is either a beginner or wants to experience contrasting flavor profiles.

    Premium tea. Really liked how smooth it tasted. All teas have their own distinct taste and aroma. Really enjoyed it. Highly recommend :))
