I had this as my evening tea and it positively surprised me. I had a few Man Zhuan teas that are significantly more expensive, but I actually preferred this one. Of course, it doesn’t last as long. However, even taking that into account, I think it is a bargain. The tea has a strong fruity fragrance, a good body and a long sweet aftertaste with a slightly cooling sensation. Even though I didn’t take detailed notes as this was my only session with it, I think it ticks all the boxes I would like from a raw pu’er in this price category. The taste is really pungent for a huang pian, and although I could detect some general similarities with the other Man Zhuan teas I’ve had, this one I found more balanced and agreeable taste-wise.
