From Chawangshop

2013 Chawangpu “Shuang Shu” Xiao Bing Cha Raw 200g
An exceptional blend of Jingmai and Mengsong material.
This blend incorporates selected materials from two different places to provide roundness of taste. Jingmai ancient tree tea and Mengsong ancient tree tea, one to one -resulting in a tea with the most stable quality and a tea with the greatest potential. Mengsong added enough depth to Jingmai; Jingmai softening Mengsong and making it move. A satisfying richness and depth of flavor create harmony and balance in the tea. These, in turn, help to improve the taste and bring new strength to the cake.

this tea punches me in the face a bit, with some sour/bitter sweetness. im not sure what to say about this tea, it tastes low-key. i think it smells a little like fern plants and tastes like sandalwood. there is some citrus that comes at you with a dry bite to it. this is another tea mrmopar sent me and its unlike any other sheng ive tried so far.. its kind of offensive but in a good way.

I got a sample of this on my last order. A blending of Jingmai and Meng song sounded interesting to me. I know Mengsong by itself is pretty nice. Jingmai can be hit or miss to me. I had previously tried the Huang Pia from this shop from Jingmai and it met my approval as well.
I got 8 grams out and gave a quick wash and allowed it to set for about 10 minutes.
The first brew was a light gold, very little char in the strainer indicating good processing. The brew was very clear as well.
Taste notes are nice. You can feel the burly part of the Mengsong and the softening the Jingmai gives it. The aromas of the wt leaf are somewhat floral. The tasting is deceptively sweet. It takes a second or two but the it s there. The later steeps bring the citrus of the Jingmai into the mix as well. This tea is viscous and thick with bitter, sweet and citrus rolled in there.
The leaf in the gaiwan is easy to pick the smaller Jingmai and the bigger Mengsong out in there. I am not sure but the larger leaf looks as it can be a bit older the Jingmai. It is making me sweat a bit as well from the Cha Qui.
Well done production.

Sounds interesting!

TeaExplorer

I was thinking the same thing. Checked it out on Chawang’s site. It’s what I’d consider a mid-range price sheng. sounds worth sampling.

mrmopar

Agreed on both points. Sample for sure. I will probably grab one to age as well.
