From The Tao of Tea

Jade Cloud, also known as ‘Wulu’, is grown at a high elevation of 1200 meters in the cloud and mist covered mountains of Zhejiang province. The cool mist is ideal for the tea plants to maintain a deep green color and develop a full rounded flavor. Made in early Spring, when the leaves are tender.

Flavor Profile: Sweet aroma similar to magnolia flowers and cucumber. Buttery, smooth, vegetal flavor.

Attempting to de-cupboard some things; this is another green tea whose subtleness is mostly lost on me. I tried cold brewing it last night and this morning I am getting some interesting cucumber and minty notes. Will probably finish the rest of it off in the cold brewed way. :)

I’ve never noticed cucumber in a green tea-I guess I’ve just never looked for it. Do you think the cucumber notes are enhanced by cold brewing the tea?

I would say yes. Still it seems kinda boring…

This is really good. Liquid Silk! So smooth and imparts a soft mouthfeel. But unlike some greens where I would describe this soft, smooth sensation as buttery – it doesn’t have that buttery taste. Not a bad thing … at all … just different. I like the buttery, but I really like this too.

Slightly vegetative, but more like a fresh vegetable. It isn’t grassy, nor does it remind me of steamed vegetables, it reminds me more of a crisp salad type of vegetative taste. It has a floral note in the background too. Orchid?

I like this very much…

ETA: As I continue to sip, a buttery flavor develops. It is still not nearly as “buttery” tasting as a Sencha, but it definitely has that buttery, silky smooth texture.

Was it real Butter or Margarine?

Batrachoid

Ha, I’ll have to remember that quip. It is masking itself as a sencha, it seems.

Started to write a tasting note about this one, and have been unable to finish it — I’m having some kind of crazy reaction to something…of the ‘restless/irritable/full-body-tension/creepy-crawly limbs’ variety. It is intensely unpleasant! It cannot conceivably be the tea unless there’s something strange in it that I don’t know about, which seems unlikely. One should hope it wasn’t the tea, because it was rather good! I don’t ever seem to drink greens (discounting matcha), and this was a reminder that I probably should…it is everything the description mentions, and a very mellow, tasty cup. It reminded me of sencha, but less intense. That might seem to imply watery, but such wasn’t the case — it had a very pleasant fullness.

I suppose I ought to strike caffeine off of the list of things I can have today, all things considered. Sadness.

Uh oh! Hope that the reaction goes away very quickly!

I decided to dust off my tin of this after reading LiberTeas latest review. But alas I still find this teas flavor to faint for my taste buds. It does have a slight hint of butter but my palate is not sophisticated enough to drink this. Once again this tin will go into the back of my Tea Bus.

Backlogging from yesterday…
slightly fresh veggie-esque! Smooth! Very nice!

It’s alright for a green, but kind of … uninspired? It’s not a bad, tea, but I much prefer Tao of Tea’s sencha to their Jade Cloud.

This is a Chinese green that has some similarities in flavor to a mild sencha. I think it is the vegetal taste that makes me think of that. For me, this is a great Chinese green. Sweet, smooth, not salty at all. I’m now out of this tea but it’s on my short list to order again.
