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.
