    Reminds me of the dark raw pu-erh I used to drink in China

    Before I met Ashley, I struggled to find a good source of raw pu-erh that matches the quality I used to get as gifts from China. I mostly drank ripe pu-erh because it was easier to find decent ripe pu-erh that is palatable. However, with raw pu-erh, decent quality is not enough. So I used to tell people that I like ripe pu-erh better.

    Then, I met Ashley. I’ve been placing my regular orders with Mansa Tea for a few years now. And I discover new favorites through Mansa. This Bangwei raw, for example, reminds me of the dark raw pu-erh I used to drink in China. It doesn’t get bitter even when I let it steep for longer. And it gives me just the right amount of energy I need to get through my day. It’s absolutely my new favorite!
