This Chinese tea, harvested in the spring, comes from the province of Jiangxi. Its name means "clouds and mists of Mount Lu", referring to the stunning mountain cloaked in clouds where the teas are harvested. A rare tea.
A floral and vegetal spring green tea with a buttery, mineral finish. The initial smoothness gives way to a subtly astringent texture.
In order to bring out all the aromatic complexity of this tea, we recommend multiple infusions using the traditional Chinese Gong Fu Cha method.
