Angel's Comment:

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 softer than Tianmu Maofeng.

Certification:

Eurofins Certification

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. 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.

Good environment conditions are the basics for producing premium teas. Yun Wu (Clouds and Mist) always remind people of foggy mountains and clear water.

Bao Jia Organic Tea Garden

Bao Jia Organic Tea Garden in Tianmu

Surrounded by Kwun Tong reservoir (官塘水库), the Baojia organic tea garden where several of our organic teas come 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.

Tea Farmer

Ms Liao, who has been in the organic tea industry for about ten years, went through the arduous process of founding an organic tea plantation from scratch. After several years of hard work and development, the organic tea garden is now fully established, and has earned USDA, EU, and JAS organic certifications to ensure the healthy quality of the tea.

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.

Origin

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.

Tea Bush

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). Nowadays, 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.
