Lu Shan Yun Wu

While Yun Wu, meaning "clouds and mist," is a common moniker for roasted teas from alpine regions, one whiff of this year’s batch from Lu Shan will conjure images of tropical seasides with its unique character of coconut and sea salt. Harvested before the Qingming Festival (the fifteenth day after the vernal equinox), this tea is particularly prized. The scent of soybeans in the gaiwan’s lid gives way to snow peas in its silky infusion, wonderfully complemented by a sweet and saltiness, and that evocative hint of coconut, inviting one to savor the nuances of this year's harvest.

For best results in gongfu cha, brew in a tall glass and fill with water before adding the leaves. Too high water temperature would burn the leaves, resulting in bitter taste.
