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.
