Lu Shan Yun Wu Superior

A quest driven by the Chinese saying ‘yun wu chu hao cha’, which means ‘where there is cloud and mist, there is bound to be good tea’, suggests a story that has just begun. This superior grade Yun Wu hails from Lu Shan where clouds and mist enveil the mountain, shading the leaves from harsh sunlight yet exposing them to an abundance of moisture from the nearby rivers and lakes. It is a unique natural environment with a rich tea heritage that traces back to the Han dynasty. The result is a taste that is refreshingly pure, brisk, and sweet as the undeniable aroma of pineapple cake that infuses the room with it.
