The second of two Jing Jia Tang teas from Spring 2015. Go here for more on this tea which comes from one of the best tea gardens in the Yi Bang area.
So here it is finally, a couple of days into the new year, the first of the 2015 teas. Jing Jia Tang’s 2015 Early Spring Meng Song offering, ‘Qing Sheng’.
This tea comes from the same tea garden as the 2013/14 ‘Qing Sheng’. For more go here.
Between last year and this saw something of a hiatus with CoB. Busy with other things and probably too many balls in the air. However, in the next few days I will get a post up that has been lingering for nigh on a year. JJT’s 2014 Da Ya – a tea from Man Zhuan. The big brother to Xiao Ya which was the last tea I posted about on CoB in 2014.
After that, I will make a start on some 2015 Spring teas. For more on the 2014 JJT ‘Da Ya’ go here.

The first tea on CoB from Jing Jia Tang. A Spring 2013 raw gu shu from a small ancient tea tree garden on Zhu Hua Liang Zi.
Meng Song is an area that has been known for many years for its particularly fragrant teas. This particular tea comes from a garden at an elevation of over two thousand metres. Read more on this tea here
This is a tea from the village of Ya Nuo in You Le (Jinuo Shan). You Le is the ‘odd man out’ of the Six Famous Tea Mountains showing qualities that are more akin to some Menghai teas. Read more here.
