In Pursuit of Tea wasn’t lying when they said “be sure to use enough” (they suggest two tablespoons per 6 oz.). This is a very, very light tea whose correct brewing can bring out some nice subtleties.
Drum Mountain White Cloud
Drum Mountain White Cloud, known as Gushan Baiyun, is grown on a mountain top in northern Fujian where, traditionally, the monks at the historic Buddhist Drum Mountain Monastery grew it. Sir Robert Fortune, the eccentric English tea explorer, visited in the mid-19th century and drank this white tea. Easy to drink, mild, sweet, and fragrant, with a soft coconut flavor. Low in caffeine. It’s a very lightweight tea – be sure to use enough.
