Laoman'e is situated nearby Bulang mountain, where Pu'er tea is characterized by a strong bitter flavor. This terroir, and the centuries-old ancient trees that grow there, at an altitude of 1600 meters, normally give Laoman'e sheng pu a peculiar astringency and a richer concentration of amino acids, which results in a bitter aftertaste and a light minerality.

However, this rare cake, made of only the oldest tea trees' leaves, has a surprising sweetness and a great delicacy, while the more familiar astringent notes come out slowly, and only in the aftertaste. The amazing complexity of this rare harvest can outshine most Pu'er teas from the same area, and the long-lasting flavor - with lingering notes of wildflowers - can make us realize why these leaves are so prized, reaching three times the value of other Ancient Tree Pu'er teas.

The rarest tea leaves, carefully stone-pressed in a 100 gr. collector's format.
