About Jiangsu, China

Jiangsu (江苏) is a province on the east coast of China, bordered by Shandong to the north, Anhui to the south, and Zhejiang to the south. Jiangsu is named after two of its major cities: "Jiang" comes from Jiangning (江宁), a Qing Dynasty name for Nanjing, and Su from Suzhou (苏州).

Jiangsu lies in the transition zone between the more northern temperate climate, and the subtropical climate that the tea plant loves.

Jiangsu is the origin of bi luo chun, a famous green tea, and also of other styles of green tea. Bi Luo Chun originated in the Dongting region, near Tai lake, pictured here.

Yixing(宜兴) is located in Jiangsu province; Yixing is famous for being the origin of Yixing teapots, which are made out of Yixing clay. These teapots are frequently used in gongfu brewing.
