Sharing excellence


  • Continuation of the series started with 2003 Tong Qing Hao and 2004 Song Pin Hao
  • Powerful traditional factory style tea, made to age
  • Very good ratings from Puerh magazine experts (5 gold and 3 silver out of 9 judges!)

Like the other 2″Hao”s (reproduction of famous tea factories of old), Jing Chang is a CYH powerhouse: tea made with traditional processing to be aged, it now has thick taste with both sweetness and satisfying bitterness, powerful calming Qi and a lot of patience.

In our opinion, it can age further because there’s plenty of bitterness and a hint of astringency left to transform. A great option both if you enjoyed the other two Haos we offered, or want to own the most affordable but still recognised as very high quality Chen Yuan Hao of the first years (2003-2005)

Note: in the early days of the storage of this tea there were some of the normal insects found in puerh, the tong has been stored dryly for the last few years and there’s no foreign tastes that we can detect.

Approx. 357g cakes, available as 1/4 slice too (approx. 85g).

    Nice tea. Thick tea A bit bitter has a slight minty taste that i don’t like. Not ready to drink or it has not been aged in the best conditions. Not experienced enough to say. No qi
