Where To Buy: Mark T. Wendell
This tea is a unique find, deriving its name from the high altitude growing areas of the Wu Lu Mountains in the Jiangxi province of China. Grown in the gentle mountain clouds and prevalent mist, this tea consists of single bud and leaf sets that unfurl magnificently when brewed. The brewed liquor has a herbaceous aroma, a smooth and sweet taste and appears a modest yellow-green in the cup.
I assumed this would be grassier tasting based on the aroma but it has a wonderful Sweet-Buttery-Almond Type Taste to it- with a little grassiness is the middle of the sip – but then ends smoother. Smoother than I expected, too!
This is a good green tea! For those of you who think green teas are grassy or mossy tasting and leave funky-floral aftertastes…give green another try if that is what turns you off on greens! Cloud & Mist from Mark T. Wendell is different and very pleasing!
Plus…Cloud Mist Green Tea is one of China’s top ten teas. Perhaps you’ve seen it by another name from other companies?
They sometimes go by Yun Wu Green Tea, Cloud and Mist Tea, Cloud and Mist Green Tea, Cloud Mist, Yun Wu Lu Cha, Lu Shan Yun Wu Green Tea, Mount Lu Cloud and Mist. Regardless this is a nice, clean cuppa. Very unique and refreshingly-sweet.
