From Yunnan Sourcing

After tasting Lu Shan Yun Wu (Lu Mountain Cloud Mist) from a tea chum’s family farm in Jiangxi we just had to offer this tea to our customers. Lu Shan Cloud Mist Green Tea is well known tea throughout China and the world.

The taste of the tea is sweet, thick with an umami after-taste that filters back into mouth from the throat. A very comfortable green tea with little harshness and lots if viscosity which gives the an expansive feeling in the mouth.

Our Imperial Grade Lu Shan Yun Wu is harvested in late March from the earliest flush of tippy shoots! Very fine tea with an excellent early spring taste!

The classic Lu Shan Yun Wu was one of the first green teas I got from YS and I really liked it back then. This year, an imperial version is offered, which I added to one of my orders. It turned out to be a great decision, this is one of the best green teas I have ever had!

The dry leaves smell of grass, cookies and algae. In a preheated gaiwan, sweet, nutty and toasty aromas emerge. Smell of the wet leaves reminds me of the classic Lu Shan Yun Wu a lot. It is vegetal and buttery with notes of aubergine, lemon balm, guava, white grapes and cooked white fish.

I used 5g with the parameters being 75°C/30s/70ml, 75°C/20s/120ml, 80°C/70s/120ml (I lost track of the subsequent infusions).

The first steep has a strong umami as expected with a nice bitterness and no astringency. It is crisp with an aromatic finish and somewhat dry aftertaste. I notice flavours of citrus zest, courgette, grass. The mouthfeel is very coating and slick with good viscosity.

I made the second steep a bit too light, but it picked out a lot of floral components of the tea and created a super soft, velvety texture. It tastes sweet and briny and a bit like seaweed. Despite being a lighter infusion, the combined aftertaste of the first two is pungent and protracted.

Third infusion sees a return of some bitterness and a fairly tart backbone, but overall it is still very balanced taste. The cha qi is very noticeable now too, bringing clarity and alertness. I feel warmth spreading through my whole body.

Highly recommended!
