* Required Fields
The dry leaves have a polished finish that reminded me of Chun Mei, so I was expecting a slightly bitter, astringent green, but I was most pleasantly surprised! The taste is strong and pleasingly sweet with not a hint of bitterness. This could easily become a favourite green tea.
Wonderful green tea. Light and nutty. Smooth finish without any unexpected grassy or fruity flavor.
I'll preface this by saying I'm usually not big on green tea..but I'm a fan of this one. I received it as part of the green tea sampler giveaway in the early spring of 2016 (thanks Teavivre!) At first I described the taste of this tea as a bit roasty, but when I read Teavivre's description of chestnuts I think that is a more accurate descriptor. I tend to like teas that have that "nutty" quality to them. It's got some strength but it isn't bitter. I did my best to avoid burning the leaves so I can't comment on how it performs when boiling water is applied, but at 80-90C it's quite tasty and I would recommend it to people who like a strong nutty green tea.
The 2013 and 2014 harvests of this tea were outstanding. It was mindblowingly good. However, the past two years have been disappointing for us -- we were not able to drink the tea we ordered, actually. Not sure if the producer has changed, but the tea does not taste like the usual wonderful Lu Shan Yun Wu we had in the past.
I received this tea after winning a giveaway, thank you Teavivre! This tea is very rich and nutty tasting. Very full bodied and savory for a green tea with the main flavors being salted nuts and a soybean vegetal green flavor. The aftertaste of nuts lingers deliciously. Satisfying and savory!
Spring 2016 harvest. Dry leaf has the scent of sweet and salty roasted green peas which carries over into the wet leaf and brewed tea. Leaf is moss green and fluffy. Brewed tea is yellow and tastes salty, vegetal and slightly nutty. Very tasty and flavorful.
outstanding tea, a real surprise for me. I received a sample of this tea and since then it has become my favourite tea. Better for me than the more famous Long Jing teas. Sweet, flavorful taste, I simply love it!
Small, wiry, dark green leaves. Primarily vegetal with spinach and green bean notes, but also nutty and roasty with a peach-like fruit sweetness. Not my favorite green tea from Teavivre, but nice nonetheless. I think this would be a good tea to drink with a meal.
A very strong and forward-facing tea. It has nothing to hide, not even its aroma. The moment you open the bag, you will know this is good tea. With strong notes of chestnut and thick, buttery overtones of deep-steamed dark-green vegetables, this particular Yun Wu is very robust, and is perfect for people who want full-flavor green tea without soft, subtle notes.
Thank you, Angel, for the sample! Taken grandpa-style in a glass. This tea fits the tone of mid/late-spring. I like the appearance of the dry leaf: short, dark green curls. The aroma of the dry leaf is buttery and savory, like a deeply steamed sencha. Of the wet leaf and the liquor, there are sweet notes of sugar snap peas and beans. The liquor is clear, pale green with a creamy texture. Flavorful, tastes briskly fresh, has sweetly vegetal notes, notably beany. Heavy feeling for a green tea. This is the first time I've had a Lu Shan Yun Wu and it's a good first experience. The heavy/buttery quality in green teas isn't to my liking, but it's not repulsive. This definitely is of good quality, one that can be enjoyed every day.
Reply: Thanks for your question. I'm not sure the size of your tall glass. But here is a brewing way you could refer to: Tea cup:8.5oz/250ml 185℉ / 85℃ 3g tea Brewing time: 3-5mins You can appropriately adjust the porportion of tea and water according to your glass. Hope it helps.
Reply: Hi Thomas, Thank you for your question. You can try the Xin Yang Mao Jian and Huang Shan Mao Feng. Hope you can enjoy them. However, every tea has its own features. Can't be the same. Hope this is helpful to your concern.
Reply: Dear GaiusGracchus, Thank you very much for writing to us. Sorry that this tea does not have EU certification. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. Wish you a good day.
Reply: If you sealed your tea very tightly and then put it in refrigerator, it can be so fresh for one year or even more longer.
Reply: Our Lu Shan Yun Wu tea has small leaf because the fresh leaf for making this tea is very tender, so it contains more nutrition like polyphenol and amino acid, and will taste better. The yunwu tea with large leaf you bought before may probably be made of leaves of lower grade, which doesn't have enough nutrition.
