The Bitter End Lite 2018 Spring Lao Man E Raw Puer Huang Pian



For those who wish to dip their toes into the realm of Lao Man E, this tea is an excellent starting point. Made from huang pian material, this tea provides a good introduction to the characteristics this village is known for, without as large a dose of bitterness.

While a pleasant bitter flavour is present, there is also a nice huigan and overall smooth taste. This balanced tea serves as a great daily drinker now, but also makes an affordable and suitable candidate for storage.

Huang pian simply refers to the older leaves on a tea tree that are either picked later in the season or removed from earlier pickings due to their less-than-desirable appearance. The leaves end up a yellow-green colour after roasting, and don’t take to rolling the same as their younger counterparts, remaining flatter and stiffer.

Nonetheless, huang pian material still can make for a very flavourful tea, typically with a smoother, sweeter and easy to accept character at a fraction of the price.

If you end up enjoying this tea, then we strongly recommend working your way up to our Bitter End Lao Man E and possibly even the Xtra Bitter, if you dare…

    This tea can only be called bitter in comparison with other Huang Pians, which are usually sweet. This is a nice HP, though not as remarkable as a HP as his relatives are (try them!).
