Details

A rare and exquisite Chinese green tea from the Cloud & Mist Zone. Harvested from the peak of Mount Lu, a beautiful scenic spot shrouded in thick mist. Produced by the most tender tea buds. An exceptionally smooth flavor with lasting nutty and fruity notes. The leaves contain a high concentration of chlorophyll and nutrients. Its content of alkaloid and Vitamin C is higher than that of common green tea.

Originally it was a wild tea, growing amid bushes and hard to be found. Around the 2nd century, Buddhist monks first began to bring it under cultivation, while wild-picking was continued by local people. To the 11th century, it became the tribute to the court under the name of 'Forest Tea'. It current name was first recorded in 'Lu Mountain Annals' of the 14th century.

There are about 130 acres of tea patches scattered on the hillside. The crop starts from the end of April to the beginning of May when leaves are about three centimeter long. The standard picking is one shoot of one leaf. After four to five hours air-drying, the leaves are rolled twice between the palms with roasting following each rolling. To ensure a high grade green tea, each of the steps is carried out by a carful hand to prevent breaking those tender leaves.

Listed in The World Culture Heritage by UNESCO in 1996, Lu Mountain is famous for its misty landscape. Its 191 yearly foggy days, from which the green tea was named, provide favorable condition for leaf-fragrance to synthesize.

Sometimes I just don't want ultra grassy green tea - I prefer the Chinese types over the Japanese ones because of this. This one is exceptionally smooth, but not as heavy as a gunpowder. (Posted on 5/10/2016)
