Name: GǔShù MànSā (Zhāng Jiā Wān Lǎo Zhài – old village)
Year: 2019, first spring plucking
Weight: 250 grams
Country of origin: China, Yunnan province
Very tasty, fragrant, sweet with tasty bitterness, nice nutty tones in aftertaste, woody bitterness, very very deep rain forest fragrance (honey notes), some new unknown scents not known from previous years, very strong gushu and rather wild feel, in taste found tones of a kind of spicyness (a blend of indian spices) and also some herbal notes
Mansa teas are from a trusted family that sells all its production to my friend Liou for about 10 years already, the tea leaves comes from ZhāngJiāWān LǎoZhài (old village area that is high in the mountains on the boarder with Laos). It takes about 45 minutes drive by 4×4 cars to reach this piece of forest where the tea trees are surrounded by other forest trees.
I find this year spring Mansa to be strongest one that I ever tried (tried Mansa continually since 2010). It is thicker and stronger in taste, this strenght usually comes up only later when stored for at least several years.
