Lushan Yunwu Tea

Lu Shan Yun Wu tea (aka Lu Mountain Cloud and Mist) is a sort of top-quality green tea produced in the famous Lushan Mountain of Jiangxi Province. Lushan Mountain is featured by high altitude, great seasonal temperature difference, strong irradiation of ultraviolet, cloud and mist suffusion in half a year, and murmuring spring. The blindingly foggy conditions of this mysterious mountain creat a natural shade growing of the tea. This environment offers advantageous growing conditions for tea trees, thus contributing to the top quality of Lu Shan Yun Wu tea.

The history of the Lu Mountain Cloud and Mist tea can be traced back to the Han Dynasty (202 BC–220 AD). The tea was initially planted by monks on Lushan Mountain. During the Song dynasty (960–1279) it became the "tribute tea".

Lu Shan Yun Wu tea is featured by delicate jade green color and luster, unveiled silver pekoe, lingering fragrance, freshingly sweet savor, as well as long-lasting aftertaste. The leaves contain a high concentration of chlorophyll and nutrients. Its content of alkaloid and Vitamin C is higher than that of common green tea. And till today most of the tea is wild and harvested by the local mountaineers.

Qing Ming Festival (April 5th) is the high time for picking tea leaves. The most precious Lu Shan Yun Wu tea is "Mingqian Tea" which is made of tea leaves picked prior to the Qing Ming Festival when spring just comes back and the shoots are extremely young and tender. The picked raw tea must be processed on the same day with multiple working procedures. One kilogram finished tea requires over 0.1 million tender shoots.
