Background: Many tea growing regions in China make Yun Wu green teas. This translates as Cloud and Mist, and refers to the humid and lush environment the tea grows in, which should be mountainous where such clouds form. Yun wu teas are typically a fine small picked leaf, tightly twisted and basket fired or roasted. The result is a dark green small twisted leaf with a sweetness and subtle toasty aroma and taste when freshly made. For 2020 we have found a great new origin producing this tea in Huo Mountain, Anhui province. Huo Shan is famous for its Yellow buds tea, a rare green tea of repute, but thanks to our great contacts we found this more affordable and delicious Yun Wu tea from the region. 
Brewing guide: 2.5grams per 250ml, brewed at 70-80C for 2min30s. This equates to about 1 level tablespoon. Water should be caught just under the boil and add ¼ cold water to ¾ hot water to get the right temperature. This tea also tastes great cold infused in summer as iced tea.
