Review: Lu Shan Yun Wu from Dream About Tea
I’ve been itching to get my hands on some of this green tea for some time, and Lainie Petersen just happened to give me a bit:
This tea looks awesome, its tiny and wiry leaves steeped up a beautiful light-green liquor that had a very subtle taste with no astringency whatsoever! I definitely recommend this tea for a simple green tea if astringency is not your thing. Dream About Tea’s site says: “This is a rare and unusual Chinese green tea, grown in Lu Shan, Jiangxi, China. The dry leaf is dark green, small, and twisted, and infuses to a lovely light green in the cup. This creamy-bodied tea possesses notes of hazelnut and baby spinach. It is also slightly salty, making it a most satisfying tea on colder days.”
Also here is a link to a post on the Tea Round Table with a link to a YouTube video with Jesse Jacobs of Samovar and James Norwood Pratt: http://tearoundtable.com/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=58
I'm writing a full-length book on tea. No history, just practical tea information and SCIENCE!
