This is my first Boyou cake and I find it to be very smooth and sweet with a dark brew almost like a cup of coffee. I am really enjoying the smoothness of this tea. It is made from material from 2008 and I would guess pretty heavily fermented from the color of the brew. I think this would be an excellent tea for a first timer. There is none of the fermented taste that you find in some other shu. This tea has been allowed to breathe to get rid of this aspect. brew at 210 with a 10 second rinse and a 10 second steep on the first cup. Overall a pretty good tea.

Courtesy of a very kind Steepster friend, my wife & I were able to experience this 8-yr old shou.

Fragrance – nothing obvious
Color – Chocolate brown few gold tips on the surface.
Rinsed leaf aroma – pleasing, sweet, moderately-strong, barnyard smell
Brewed aroma – mild typical pu-erh aroma
Liqueur – Dark brown

Taste – Thin, flat, homogenous, woodie, w/o bitterness, fishiness or funk. However, there was noticeable astringency that gradually increased with each serving. There was also a woodie aftertaste that persisted long after this gongfu session. Even though we had toast with our tea, we both had stomach upset after drinking 6oz each of this shou.

Flavor profile – Woodie

Impression – Not our cup of tea. Perhaps the 10-sec rinse suggested in mrmopar’s review may have helped. Unfortunately, I didn’t read it until after this session as I didn’t want it to potentially color my observations.

12.6g / 6 oz / 205° / 60s preheat / 60s warm leaves / 5s rinse / 20 min rest / 5s / 5 / 5 / 5 / stopped session due to stomach upset.

I was gifted a sample of this tea and found time to drink it today. The first impression I had was that this tea is very smooth and mellow. This tea is so smooth it could be compering at a jazz club. There is no earthiness, no astringency and no bitterness. Instead it is mostly a wet woody flavour with tiny hints of cinnamon and cedar, and a thickish mouthfeel. I’m not getting much else from it, but that is alright because the smoothness is very pleasant and I am pleased to be getting a decent number of steeps from it too. Not every tea has to be challenging, you know.
