One of China's traditionally famous teas, Lu Shan Yun Wu is harvested from the peak of Mount Lu, a beautiful scenic spot shrouded in thick mist and a favorite holiday destination. There was a old Chinese saying "Yun Wu Chu Hao Cha", which means "where there's cloud and mist, there's bound to be good tea". Indeed, Lu Shan Yun Wu is one of China's finest, and it was already an Imperial Tribute Tea since the Song Dynasty. In recent years, new processing techniques have created new variations of Wun Yu tea. There are Chun Jian (original), Chun Mao, Mao Feng and Yin Zhen styles. We chose the latter as it is made only from the most tender tea buds.
Lu Shan Yun Zhen, Mount Lu Cloud and Mist (Silver Needle Style)
A very unique and lasting sweet taste with hint of fruity notes. Unlike other green teas, the sweetness is quite apparent. Good for up to four infusions. We recommend Zhong Tou style brewing for this tea (see preparation guide).
Single bud covered with white down. Stands upright during infusion and you will also notice some purplish leaves once the buds open slightly.

The fresh tea leaves of Lu Shan Yun Wu are picked under strict requirement of one bud with one leaf or one bud with two leaves. After processed, the leaves will shape into tight, curly and strong strips. The liquid presents bright and green color while showing brisk fragrance. The scent of roasted chestnut lasts long. This Lu Shan Yun Wu is better to be brewed with big glass. It will has brisk and refreshing flavor and sweet taste. After several steeps, you will see the tea leaves tenderly stretched and showing its soft and light yellow appearance.
