If our regular Bitter End Lao Man E is a good example of the local “sweet” varietal tea, then this is undoubtedly the bitter varietal. This tea starts out with a noticeably dominant bitter taste, and while the bitter taste carries on, there are also complex levels of flavour on display before finishing with a gentle huigan.

This tea is made from quality old tree material and can be quite enjoyable for many, assuming you don’t have any aversion to bitterness (and if that’s the case, let us help you get where you were going).

We highly recommend this tea for the bi(tter)-curious as a comparison between our Lao Man E “sweet” varietal and huang pian versions.

This tea was initially only offered in 10g maocha form, as we initially intend to offer it for the experience and educational aspects. We have caved to requests though, and those of you whose life is too sweet can now purchase 50g of Xtra Bitter as well. If this is a tea you could see yourself buying a cake of, please let us know as your feedback is welcome and could easily influence our decision to press or not in future seasons.
