    Wow - best ripe pu-erh I've ever tasted

    When it comes to pu-erh teas, I am more of a raw pu-erh person. But this ripe pu-erh was so different from others I've tried before. I used to think that ripe pu-erh is just earthy with sweet rice notes, but this one completely changed my perception. This tea is much more complex with a mix of fruity and sweet notes. Highly recommend. Even if you are not a typical ripe pu-erh fan.

    Hi SY, Thank you for your wonderful review of our Laoman'e 2018 Ancient Tree Ripe Pu'er. Ripe Pu'er is definitely a special tea. In our tasting notes, we've compared it to white peach, dried jujube, and pine tree with a lingering sweetness after each sip. It's nice that this has opened up your mind to the possibilities of ripe pu-erh, and we hope that you'll try some more!
