Organic Tian Mu Yun Wu tea is plucked during the early spring days near Grain Rain (谷雨, 6th solar term). To ensure quality, one bud and one leaf or one bud with two leaves (which just starts to open up, called 初展) is allowed to be hand-plucked. It is estimated that 1kg contains about 62,000 pieces of young shoots.
云雾 (Yun Wu) literally means “cloud and mist,” is something of a generic name for green teas. In general, the higher the green teas are ranked, the milder the taste will be. Like most of the high grade green teas, Teavivre’s organic Tian Mu Yun Wu tea also has a delightfully light taste. But its stir-fried bean fragrance is not as prominent as others green teas when first infused. The flavor of this tea is very smooth and there is definitely some light fresh sweetness and briskness in each sip, which may remind you of the spring taste, sweet and long-lasting.
I would like to use the word elegant to describe this Organic Tianmu Yunwu tea, both the fragrance and taste are quite soft. It is higher grade although the taste may thinner than Tianmu Maofeng.
The main processing steps to make this tea are : de-enzyming (fixation) – rolling – drying.
More precisely , the drying method applied to this tea is hot-air fixation (烘青). In general, the aroma of hot-air fixation type green teas are not so strong as the stir fixation types, but the former have a higher leaf integrity degree than the latter.
On the market, Huangshan Maofeng, Tai Ping Hou Kui, Liu An Gua Pian are common hot-air fixation teas.
This Organic Tian Mu Yun Wu Green Tea comes from Tianmu Mountain, located in Lin’an, northwest in Zhejiang Province, a distance of 84 kilometers away from Hangzhou. Tianmu in Chinese means the eyes on heaven. There is a pool on each top of east peak (elevation of 1480 meters) and west peak (elevation of 1506 meters) of Tianmu Mountain. The two pools look like the eyes that are watching the sky. This is how it was named.
With elevation of 300 m to 1556 m, Tianmu Mountain is well-known for its typical forest ecosystem and landscape of middle subtropical regions.
Good environment conditions are the basics for producing premium teas. Yun Wu (Clouds and Mist) always remind people of foggy mountains and clear water.
Surrounded by Kwun Tong reservoir (官塘水库), the Baojia organic tea garden where our organic Yun Wu tea comes from is just located in somewhere in Tianmu Mountains in Lin'an, 800-1000 meters above sea level. At this elevation, superior geographical conditions enable good drainage and moderated sunshine, which are two crucial factors to tea growth.
The average annual rainfall here is about 1, 550 mm. Tian Mu mountains are often covered by cloud and mist, which blocks, to some degree, the direct sun light on tea leaves so that the air humidity and diffuse light can be enhanced. Besides, the soil is high in organic content and has an acidic PH that is suitable for growing tea trees. Therefore, the end teas from this garden are especially tender and pleasant-smelling.
Ms Liao has been in tea industry for more than 10 years. Ms Liao, who always devotes herself to establish model of organic tea industry, owns more than 10 tea gardens, including organic tea gardens over 8,000 ares. Several of her tea gardens get the strict organic certification of USDA, EU, JAS.
In August of 2010, dragon well long jing tea from Ms Liao’s tea garden won the first prize of hot tea class in tea championship of World Tea Expo in Las Vegas, America.
As regards of tree species, Cuifeng tea cultivar is a kind of small tree (medium leaf type). It is a newly bred green tea cultivar selected from the progeny of natural hybrid of Fuding Dahaocha (福鼎大白茶) and Yunnan large-leaf species (云南大叶种). Today, this cultivar is widely grown in Zhejiang, Anhui, Hubei, Jiangsu, Jiangxi, Guangxi and other tea producing areas in China, especially in regions south of the Yangtze River.
Cuifeng tea leaves are ideal for making high-end green teas and its tightly tired strip-type, slimly looking are the indications of its fresh taste as well as intriguing fragrance.

As reviewed on Steepster as KiwiDelight. 2017 harvest sample provided by *Teavivre*. Thank you! Had a gongfu session, brewing 3g in a 60ml porcelain gaiwan with 180 degree water (the ratio is a bit higher than the recommended, which is 1g:30ml). No rinse. Followed the website's steeping directions directions: 10 seconds, 15, 20, 25, 35. The dry leaf aroma is lightly sweet with notes of corn silk, white sugar, and hay; and transforms into butter and fresh blueberry muffins after I let the leaf sit in the pre-heated gaiwan. (I triple-checked - yes, blueberry muffins!) The wet leaf aroma is drastically different: vegetal and savory. I didn't let the leaf rest in fresh air as usual when they're packaged in these packets, and that may explain the bizarre yet fascinatingly scrumptious aromas. With a fresh and lively feel, the liquor is bright green in color and full-bodied. It has a sometimes thick, sometimes creamy texture. Though clean tasting, there are many bits of bud fuzz floating around. The liquor tastes similar to the wet leaf aroma in that it is vegetal and savory. Heavy in flavor, but not in substance. Tops off with a sweet finish. No aftertaste. The taste and feel are consistent throughout the session. I went beyond the recommended steeping times: 45 seconds; 1 minute, 2, 5. I could have stopped with 45, the sixth infusion, which tastes lighter and sweeter than the previous five and has a cooling sensation. Thereafter, the liquor tastes cooked. Teavivre continues to offer excellent green teas. I'm not much for savory green teas, but I really like this one. It's a little more high-end for the pricing of 100g, but seems worth it.
Another sample from Teavivre! Thank you! I'm trying to write tasting notes quickly because they were nice enough to send some samples over, and sometimes I don't try the samples at their freshest. Oh but this one is fresh! Such lovely fragrance even just opening the sample -- sweetest creamy corn and the flavor is exactly the same as the scent. And I adore these types of green teas. The flavor is lighter, but so delicious. The brew is smooth and clear even though the tea itself has plenty of fuzzies. The dry leaves are extremely spiky, long and twisted together. I used two teaspoons, or possibly more because they were clinging together so much. Over the years of trying Teavivre's teas, I've wanted to stock up on most of them that I've tried! How does Teavivre find these amazing teas? They are the tastiest teas! I couldn't even pick a favorite green from Teavivre because they are all so good. I definitely wouldn't need to buy my green teas anywhere else. Steep #1 // 2 teaspoons for a full mug// 33 minutes after boiling // 3 minute steep Steep #2 // 25 minutes after boiling // 3 minute steep Harvest: 2017
I think that this is one of the best green teas I have tasted. There is a subtle sweet taste. Taste is rather bold yet smooth. Highly recommended. I'm glad I took a chance and ordered a large quantity!!
Got a tasting sample Tastes very similar to medium quality sencha Fresh and grassy smells with hints of flowers and seaweed The leaves are quite crushed . Hard to find an intact leave. Hope it is just bz of the small qty A pleasant every day tea. For this price expect the broken leaves nothing to complain
This tea is a gem. Wonderful notes of ocean breeze, and a sweet lingering aftertase. Remarkably calming yet invigorating. One of your best greens by far! Thanks again teavivre!
