I just received this in the mail. A beautiful aroma in the dry leaves. A beautiful aroma when brewed for the suggested 3 minutes. I brewed it in the 1 cup Yixing. A very delicate flavor. I will add more leaves in my next brew. I like the Dragonhouse Tea website. It’s the Disneyland for tea lovers like myself. I must add this lovely tea has elevated my mood. Ye Gods….
Premium Lu Shan Yun Wu
Lu Shan is located in Jiangsi province in a cleft between the Yangtze River and Lake Poyang, both of which help provide water for the mist and clouds that wreathe its peaks.
Here is where the Tea Sage Lu Yu wrote his famous book, which mentions Lu Shan Yun Wu tea.
The plant from which this tea comes has stout, thick leaves covered with fine white down. The shrub was grown as early as the Tang dynasty. By the Song dynasty an excellent species had been developed and around A.D. 1000 its product became an imperial tribute. The tea has a sweet taste and refreshing fragrance. This tea is rated among China’s top ten.
The Tea is famous for its dense flavour, bright look, fragrance, clear liquor. It has been sold home and abroad. Savouring the tea, you will find it softer in taste. Using the natural sping water to steep it, the flavour will be much better. With the influence of the cooling and misting climate and sunshine, the tea is featured as thick leaves, tiny hairs. It has richin tannins and vitamins. It tastes clean and crisp, the lasting sweet taste with hint of nutty and fruity notes makes it unique.
