Recommended for experienced raw pu-erh lovers looking to try the famous Laoman'e Ancient Tree tea and age for years to come

Very special bamboo pu-erh tea from Laoman'e. Located near Laobanzhang on Bulang Mountain, the village of Laoman'e produces one of the most prized pu'er teas. Tea trees in Laobanzhang trace their heritage to those in Laoman'e, and the difference in terroir brings a robust contrast in flavor between the two villages. Aged in our bespoke bamboo container, this particular raw pu-erh delivers a hint of imbued bamboo aroma

Tasting Notes: Butterscotch, malt, mandarin peel

    Fantastic Tea

    This one has very sophisticated aromas and taste notes. I am definitely getting a bit a butterscotch and honey in the beginning but also a refreshing citrus finish. Definitely one of my favorites. I'm super excited to try out some of the other varieties!

    A Special Moment Tea

    Drinking tea is like riding a time machine into the past. There are specific kinds of tea that stamp moments into our memories for a lifetime. For me, I gifted this tea to my friend as her birthday present hoping to mark our friendship.

    When she sipped this for the first time, she described it as a special moments kind of tea. Tasting this or a tea like this will only bring memories of our friendship into the present no matter where we both are in the future because the taste is so fragrant and unique.

    Can't believe I found an authentic Laoman'e pu'er!!

    First of all, Laoman'e is one of the best terroir out there for pu'er. So not only is it hard to come by due to limited availability, but also there are so many fake ones in the market. After trying the Taste of First Step, I decided to take a chance on Mansa's Laoman'e as I could immediately taste the quality from my initial purchase. And I am very glad I did. The lasting sweet aroma, the depth of the body, and the ability to brew many many times all point at the authenticity of this tea. Absolutely love this one.
