From Yunnan Sourcing

We are excited to offer this premium ripe pu-erh cake made entirely from Spring 2011 Bu Lang mountain material. First flush material was collected from several Bu Lang villages and fermented for 46 days. After fermentation was completed, the tea was dried and graded. We blended the various grades to create a balance recipe comprising of tippy golden buds and heavier grade 1,3, and 5 leaves. The term “Hui Run” refers to the sweet, slippery and soothing feeling that lingers in the mouth and throat even after the tea drinking session has ended.

357 grams per cake (7 cakes per bamboo leaf tong)

November 15th, 2011 compression date!

Infused 3 grams of tea including the few crumbs in this sample, in a very small porcelain gaiwain. Flash rinsed x 1, then a 10 second infusion with about 40mL water at 195 degrees: a teasing impression, a little sweet, a little earthy, promising a lot more with longer infusions. It is quite nice through 10 or so infusions—where I am now—earthy, sweet, plummy. Nice stuff.

Editing to add, that this tea has an unusually nice long sweetwater phase, fruity and not just faintly sweet. Very nice pu.

I picked this tea randomly this morning from amongst my morning teas. It is very good. It is slightly sweet without any hint of bitterness. There is a little fermentation flavor left but not much. It has notes of dates or plums, not sure which. This would have more notes if I was brewing gongfu style.

I brewed this once in an 18oz teapot with boiling water and 10g leaf for 25 sec. It is hard to brew this tea wrong.

Preparation
Boiling 0 min, 30 sec 10 g 18 OZ / 532 ML

I love this one;)

I bought a tong of it about a year and a half ago. I have about four or five cakes left. I keep one broken up in a big ceramic tea caddy and steep it as a breakfast tea. I also picked up a tong of the 2013 Hui Run.

This tea is very rich. Dark burgundy color and very thick, almost viscous.
Woody and sweet but not overly. Some plum and cherries detected. Very strong sweet aftertaste
I had a very nice gongfu session and will continue tomorrow .

It’s so frustrating when notes get eaten!

Stephanie

I hate when that happens. Tea sounds good though!

boychik

I’m beginning to think that Steepster is annoyed with me haha
It happened again. And I’ve noticed some of my older notes disappeared :(

JC

That sucks! It happened to me several times so I started writing them in wordpad and just copy/pasting into steepstes… you know just in case :P

boychik

JC, it’s a great idea except I’m on vacation and I only have iPhone :(
When I come back I will write in word pad. I have to survive somehow another month. Thanks for recommending ;)

A while back I e-mailed my long lost brother Scott at Yunnan Sourcing asking him for some recommendations. This Shou is one that he suggested. The color of the soup is a deep mahogany that borderlines on red wine. The best way to describe the taste is a sweet and earthy combination. I really liked the “Hui Run” which the website refers to as “the sweet, slippery and soothing feeling that lingers in the mouth and throat even after the tea drinking session has ended.” I tend to like my Shou pu’er a little more earthy, but I will definitely enjoy drinking this excellent Shou. This would be a great tea for someone who is new pu’er teas and might be afraid of being overwhelmed be a really earthy tasting Shou. Also, at $27 for 357g, I almost feel like I stole it!!!!
