From Teance

A rare and unusual green tea, tiny moss like curls of a dark jade green color, most akin to the Bi Luo Chun. Buttery, complex, and fresh tasting, grown on the peaks of Lu Shan, a Taoist mountain known for its fantastic scenery. The blindingly foggy conditions of this mysterious mountain makes for a natural shade growing of the teas, where they grow mostly wild and harvested by the local mountaineers. Competing for sunlight constantly, the leaves produce a high concentration of chlorophyll and nutrients that results in a rich meal like taste.

Exactly 170 F, for 1 minute. Glass cup, metal basket infuser, covered. I found in this tea a sweet green aroma and a buttery artichoke flavor. Second steep was the sweetest. A cool tingle lingers on the tongue, requesting another sip. Quite delightful. I prefer it warm or hot, as the richness of scent and taste is muted in the cooled tea.

Wowsers B. Bowsers.

One of the best greens I’ve had, and possibly the best version of this specific type I’ve had.

If I weren’t so lazy, I’d type proper notes. This tea certainly deserves ’em. And yet…

This tea has a nice smooth, delicate sweetness to it and a rich history dating back to the Mt. Lu Buddhist monasteries- the exclusive cultivators of Yun Wu during the Tang dynasty. The poets and writers would travel up the mountain, gather at these monasteries and drink Yun Wu tea with the monks to become enlightened. Maybe we too, can become enlightened when we drink it.

Does anyone find themselves enlightened after drinking Lu Shan Yun Wu?

one of the highest scoring teas of 2010 by Walker Tea Review (93). lower astringency for a green, with smooth texture and green sweetness.

As seen in Review #171:

So good, I added it to a Reserve Tea Package:

This is a very lovely tea. This might actually be one of the highest ratings I’ve ever given!

Lovely complexity of taste in a subtle shade. I’m very thankful I followed the brewing instructions as the almost clear liquor packs a distinctively flavorful kick. Really this is what green teas should taste like.

Vegetal notes with subtle floral. Its hard to distinguish between (I got bok choy and spring peas, as well as green bell peppers as it brewed longer, all with the sweetness of roasted chestnuts and faint gardenia/rose). Really this is an amazing tea.

My one concern was that the price was a little high, but if someone bought this for me…(hint hint), I would gladly accept. ;)

Wow. This tea is great. It’s important to brew it as instructed, at 160 degrees. I experimented with bringing it up to 175 and it definitely tasted burned. At 160, it was light and slightly buttery, sweet, and round. I will keep it for special occasions, as it’s a bit pricey so I don’t want to run through it too quickly.

I tried this tea at a tasting at the shop when I lived in California. It had a really good flavor but its the only Lu Shan Clouds and Mist I’ve ever tried!

I found this tea to lack presence when first brewed. Mild maybe sweet. When it cooled it had a distinctly astringent taste when brewed to instruction, with a reduced water temp, and when brew time was shortened.
