Recent Tasting Notes


My family had this tea cake in the cupboard and I just tried it over the holidays. I like this tea. It’s a little bit bitter on the first steep, but overall has an underlying sweetness that I like. It tastes a bit more complex than the What-cha pu-erh that I tried recently. It has some flavors that remind me of Yunnan Blacks. There’s a spiced taste I’ve found in Upton’s Yunnan tea, and the dark earthiness that I’ve tasted in other puerhs. I find I really like the wet fermented puerh taste, and it’s pretty comforting on a fall day. It kind of reminds me of the smell of wet moss.

This tea was not sold to me by Spring Tea Group but purchased on Taobao and it was already in the catalog.


i was going to use that but you said spring tea group


No I did not say I got it from Spring Tea Group, I said Spring Tea Group sells Long Run Tea in the USA. I told you I got it on Taobao.


Spring Tea Group doesn’t sell all Long Run Tea, just a certain percentage. They don’t sell this one last time I looked.
