The aroma of the rather rough and green leaves is very sharp, like wet hay and, well, fermented tea leaves, it has that distinct fermentation smell that you get off of things that have started to become great friends with the microbes that are now hanging out with them. Mix in faint notes of honey, green beans, spinach...

Mangnuo "Cane Tea" Raw Pu-erh From Ancient Tea Tree 2014 Early Spring from WymmTea

Style: Raw (Sheng) Pu-erh – Region: Yunnan, China

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5

The aroma of the dry leaves is pretty subtle, with notes of green bamboo leaves, freshly mown grass, cut hay, and a finish of camphor. I do love those camphor notes in tea, especially in the summer where it acts as a coolant.

The tea starts out a little bitter and then boom immediately sweet with a surprisingly smoo...

Its fairly faint aroma is a blend of sweetness and green, like fresh cut grass and honey, with a tiny hint of smoke. The faintness of the aroma did not worry me like it would with some teas, those crazy compressed to the point of being like a brick teas tend to have a faint aroma, at least the ones I have experienced.

Sep. 17th, 2014

The aroma of this little tuo is not very strong, with faint notes of wet hay, sweet freshly mown hay, a bit of yeasty bread, a touch of mineral, and salty lotus leaf. Specifically the lotus notes remind me of the lotus wrapped sticky rice (or lo mai gai) that I love so much when going out for dim sum. Delicious!

The aroma of this tea reminds me of nature, it is like being on the edge of a pine forest and a field right after a summer rain storm. There are notes of wet hay and wet wood, along with fresh pine and camphor, also a little hint of flowers and minerals, much like rain water. It is very sweet and refreshing.

The fir...

The aroma of this Pu Erh is really intriguing, blending sweet notes of anise, pine needles, hay and wet oak wood. It smells really clean and nature like, the sweetness is that of new growth and anise.

The taste is very light and quite smooth in the mouth. The taste is one of sweet hay and honey that fades to a bit o...

Feb. 25th, 2014

The aroma of this tea is great, it smells like a forest in late summer, pine wood, loam and vegetation. It blends life and decay, humidity and wood. The brewed tea has more of a spinach and old hay aroma with a bit of barnyard.

The mouthfeel is really fascinating, thick and causes me to salivate a lot. The taste is ...

May. 30th, 2013

This might be the most peculiar tea I have ever tasted. I received it with a mixture of flavored Sheng and Shu Pu Erh Tuochas and had to try it first because I love sticky rice as a food. The aroma is mostly sweet sticky rice with a slightly fishy undertone from the Pu Erh. The taste is so unusual!!! You can taste the ...
