Today’s tea is the 2005 Ruyi LongRun Shou Puer. I snagged this cake at the World Tea Expo 2016 but it is available on Amazon! This puer is Lingcang material. I had asked LongRun what was their oldest shou was and they directed me to this 357 gram cake. 2005 is actually the date they rewrapped this tea. They bought a factory and these cakes were part of that acquisition, so likely they are older. I went blind on this one as I got a deal and was hoping for some good old shou.

I bought this LongRun 2007 HeXin Shou Puer Tuocha while I was at the World Tea Expo 2016. Similar to my other purchase from LongRun teas, this tea was stamped one year, but they stated it was another.

It is Yunnan origin and that is all the information I can find on this tea. By the way, Longrun pu’er is available on Amazon.com. So far the Longrun pu’er I’ve gotten has been decent, so if you want tea off Amazon I’d … Continue reading, hoot!
While I was at the recent World Tea Expo, I was super happy to find a seller there that carried lots of Pu’er – LongRun Tea! I walked away with 2 pu’er cakes. Looking at their website, I couldn’t find a store front. After more poking around, it appears they sell on Amazon! Hey guys, there’s pu’er on Amazon! Today, I’ll be reviewing LongRun Tea’s 2011 Chunhui Unfermented Sheng Pu’er. It’s a 357g cake, priced at $28.99 as I write this. I scored my cake for $20 at WTE, nice! The tea in this pu’er cake is Lingcang, Yunnan spring material from … Continue reading, hoot!
