From China Best Tea Store

A famous green tea from the Sichuan province of China. In Song dynasty, this tea was listed as product for the royal. Prized for flavor, sweetness, and as a longevity tea, this tea was an Imperial Tribute Chinese green tea for approximately a thousand years, ever since the Song Dynasty. This tea takes on the luster of clouds and fogs. Like other famous and rare Chinese green teas, the flavor is unique, but Meng Shan Yun Wu is particularly noted for a gentle and lasting sweetness.

The buds are hand processed. Variations on this tea which include additional leaves beyond the bud have been styled into Chun Mao, Mao Feng, and Yin Zhen presentations.

The liquor in the cup is a clear pale yellow. Absorbed the essence of great nature, the tea has a very unique and lasting sweet taste with hint of nutty and fruity notes. Soft and smooth in the mouth and brings thin but long aromatic flavor that fills the mouth.

Steeping Instruction:
Use about 2 teaspoon full of tea leaves (0.1 oz) for about every 5 ounces of water (160-180F)
A steeping time of about 3-5 minutes with more or less time is recommended depending on the desired taste.
A glass Gaiwan is recommended to brew the premium tea. Using any of these vessels will help the leave unfurl and achieve the best taste.

This tea arrived this morning after a string of recent purchases on AliExpress. I’ve wanted some Meng Shan Yun Wu – Cloud Mist for a while and finally decided to give this one a try. It was organic and moderately priced so I though it was worth the risk.

It was packed in a vacuum sealed foil pack and had a sticker on the front with it’s name and date. Something I don’t take for granted as some I’ve received before from other orders didn’t say which tea was which!

I opened the pack and was overwhelmed by an amazing sweet grass scent. Very thick and honeyed. So beautiful! Very fresh smelling and much nicer than I had hoped for.

Tea liquid is misty yellow. Flavour is thick, sweet, grassy, floral and mineral. Reminds me of kale and broccoli with sweet grass and gladiola. There is some bitterness and dryness in the after taste.

Despite it’s bitterness it actually tastes more mineral like, broccoli to me has a natural bitterness and this tea acts in a similar way. In other words it’s not bad bitterness. It’s thickness however is a bit much, but it just means I should have perhaps done a shorter steep, the second steep was almost perfect. (My first steep was around 40 seconds and second steep around 10 seconds). First steep was so long because I forgot about my tea thanks to Pokemon being on tv and I got excited because Togepi was on it.

Anyway this is a very nice, strong green tea and it’s fresh. My risk purchase paid off it would seem. 50g was only £3.46 including delivery. For £6 I can get 250g :) Will do that when I run out.
