Description:

Boyou was founded in 2005, now is one of the factories which still adhere to the strictest sanitary standard in Xishuangbanna. Boyou TF hire Master Huang An Shun who was fermentation workshop director working at the Menghai Tea factory since 1957 to be supervisor for fermentation process.

05 series ripe puerh is the first batch of products. Used 2005 fermented and matured materials, after more than six months storage, select 7th grade material and blended into this "0507M"product. Similar recipe and taste with Dayi 7572, but only half the price.

Deep red and clean tea liquor, smooth with nice aroma and sweet aftertaste! This tea is made of large leaves material and can brewed for many times.

Shi Kun Mu recommend - "Especially 0507 is made of young and strong leaves, light fermentation, light 'Duiwei', taste thick, full-bodied and sweet, lingering aftertaste..."

Pu-erh numbering was standardized by Yunnan Tea Company in 1976 in order to improve export of this commodity. Standard cake has a four-digit numbering. The first two digits indicate the manufacturing year. The third digit indicates the leaf grade and the last digit indicates tea factory. For example well-known formula 7572 says that it was created in 1975, it is using tea leaves of grade number 7 and it was produced in 2 = Menghai Tea Factory. This factory produces its products since 1989 under the brand name Dayi. Since 2007, the printed use of Dayi’s recipe types were disallowed in names of products of other companies. Therefore Boyou is using different code for basically the same recipe.
0507 - The first two numbers indicate the year of the creation of the recipe used for the production of this tea. In this case, it is the year 2005. The second two digits indicate tea leaves grade.

Dry tea smells nutty, no trace of earthiness. When comparing 0507 and 0508, I find dry samples identical. Smell of 0508 is also nutty. Surface of cake contains both the lighter and darker leaves.
The smell of steamed leaves is earthy for a little while, but immediately passes into a very intense fruity aroma of ripe fruit with hints of nuts.
The first infusion has a mild nutty flavor, no earthiness and it leaves a subtle sweet taste in the mouth.
The second infusion is superb. Consistency is caressing and dense. Tea comfortably slips into the stomach and warms it up. I can feel the energy in my hands and also in my cheeks. The flavor is nutty with a hint of fruitiness.
I like the taste of ripe fruits in Shu teas and this is exactly my taste. Earthiness is replaced by a nutty flavor, dense and caressing texture. Nice soaking energy. There is nothing disturbing to point out, simply 5 stars.
Bad news at the end – the tea is already sold out. You can buy only 25 g sample for $3 on Cha Wang. I definitely recommend trying it.

Quotes - Pu-erh


„Pu-erh shape - Melon, or gold melon - Its shape is similar to tuóchá, but larger in size, with a much thicker body decorated with pumpkin-like stripes. This shape was created for the famous "Tribute tea" (貢茶) made expressly for the Qing Dynasty emperors from the best tea leaves of Yiwu Mountain. Larger specimens of this shape are sometimes called "human-head tea" (人頭茶), due in part to its size and shape, and because in the past it was often presented in court in a similar manner to severed heads of enemies or criminals.“

Quotes

„Once dry, maocha can be sent directly to the factory to be pressed into raw pu'er, or to undergo further processing to make ripened pu'er. Sometimes Mao Cha is sold directly as loose-leaf "raw" Sheng Cha or it can be matured for 2–3 years in loose leaf form due to the faster rate of natural fermentation in an uncompressed state. This product is then pressed into numerous shapes and sold as "raw" Sheng Cha as a more matured final product.“
