Drum Mountain Clouds & Mist (Gua Shan Yun Wu)
The taste of this tea is reminiscent of nectar with a rich finish and a lingering sweet aftertaste. Silk Road Teas was the first U.S. tea company to offer this tea. In China, it is called Mei Lan Chun. The plant varietal, known as Mei Zhan, is slow-growing and produces a small harvest. It is easy to brew and does not become bitter with over steeping. The tea is at its best with water temperature well below boiling at 185 – 195 degrees and the leaves will offer multiple infusions.
