2022 Mánzhuān

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

蛮砖 Manzhuan mountain rests at an especially tucked away and rugged corner of already wild Mengla county — it’s as though this remoteness can be experienced through its tea leaves: the flavor of Manzhuan tea, while still indicative of greater Yiwu area terroir characteristics, provides us with compelling flavors and fragrances, truly unique unto itself. A specific narcotic bready vegetalness with infused minerality provides an alive and thick mouthfeel.  Freaking tasty. Charm and intrigue suffuse the imagination.

While quality control over processing acumen for Manzhuan tea has suffered some scrutiny of lagging behind the trend setters over the years, the Hé family’s reconnaissance of prime leaf material combined with their industry-leading processing team promises the experiencing of Manzhuan mountain in premier fashion.  Fans of the popular 2020 release of this tea won't be let down.

Check out the loose, mao cha version of this tea from 2021.

One comment on “2022 Mánzhuān”

  1. The Hé family produces some incredibly good teas. The sold-out 2020 version of this Manzhuan is one of my most favorite ever, and my cake was starting to get pretty small. But there was no need for me to panic, because this 2022 is a competent replacement. For my first session with it I brewed 6g/100 ml with 10 seconds +4 and I got a bitter-free sweetfest. Gentle and light. Pushing it to 7g/100ml and 15 +5 returned a richer/thicker liquor with a very pleasant bitterness. A much more interesting brew, in my opinion. This is a fun one to play around with and, like its predecessor, always a great session.
