From Yunnan Sourcing

2007 Boyou ManLu Da Shan Mengsong Mountain Raw 357g
Boyou tea factory was started by yet another ex-Menghai tea blender. Boyou is well known for showcasing Menghai tea mountains and making Ripe Pu-erhs that rival DaYi ripe teas. This particular tea cake was the Silver Prize winner at the 2007 Tea Culture Exhibition in Chengdu. It is a tea produced entirely from MengSong mountain tea trees (specifically ManLu Shan on the border with Burma). MengSong tea trees are well known for being a slightly smaller leaf varietal that was the result of cross-breeding several hundred years ago. The tea cake itself has Xiaguan-like iron compression which is perfect for aging in wetter climates like Guangzhou or Malaysia. The tea itself is strongly aromatic with flower and mushroom tones. There is a sweet after-taste and feeling of comfortable thickness in the mouth and throat.

2007 Boyou “Man Lu Da Shan” Meng Song Mountain  – Yunnan Sourcing

Price: £33.64 ($48) 400g cake = £0.08 ($0.11) / g

Take 2 – been airing out. The first time I tried it, straight out of the zip bag it was really bad (50/100)

73/100

Summary: Although a 2007 year tea it is still very youthful. However, it provides a good mix of bitter lemon with a pleasant body of dull Menghai-style sweetness. Mouth feel is mouth puckering bitterness and astringent. A tea for refreshing the mind. When Scott describes it as “a tea for aging“ it means it is very bitter.

3g 75ml gaiwan

Wet: Concentrated herbal, hot strawberry jam, lemon, very sweet, berry fruits.

Rinse: Very, very light peach. Probably not opened due to the mega high compression.

10s – It is impossible to drink this tea whilst it is compressed. Stab with fork (traditional Chinese method). Pale yellow. Thin and slightly astringent, but delivers a refreshing tang of lemony hay. 70/100

15s – More fork bashing (traditional Chinese method). Light/mes yellow. Starts thin with lemony hay, then thickens and has a deep light honey base. Dominant sweet notes take over the bright bitter and medium astringent beginning. 72/100

1. 20s – More fork bashing (traditional Chinese method). Med yellow. Strong bitterness around the back of the mouth and throat, astringent on the front of the tongue. A warming in the stomach. There is a Menghai-style dull sweetness, which provides much of the body. A honey sweet finish, similar to 2011 Menghai Mensong has appeared amidst astringency. 75/100

25s – Med yellow. Refreshingly bitter with honey-sweet finish. Astringency remains. 72/100

This is a nice little gem from the Boyou factory. The cake has a nice feel to it – a pretty wrapper and all. It is very tightly compressed. First infusions are sweet and flowery, with notes of Lucky Charms. Later infusions taste a bit deeper and darker, with some age showing through. But it still tastes young overall, probably because of the compression. A little huigan, sourness, and just a touch of astringency and smoke here and there. Overall a nice drink.
