Zhejiang Wu Lu “Misty Green” is a clean and tangy green tea from the Lu Mountain area neighboring Zhejiang Province. The name “Wu Lu” translates to ‘Misty Mountain” which is a descriptive designation of the mountainous regions that have a large amount of clouds and mist around and therefore high humidity – areas that are perfect for tea farming. The cool and misty climate as well as mineral rich soil combine to produce a flavoursome tea that has a high level of theanine and is rich in tannins and vitamins.

Local legend has it that the tea bushes can be found in the fog only by those who wish to pick the leaves only for their own consumption. So, we are fortunate to have this tea in our collection.

The small, tightly twisted buds of this Zhejiang Wu Lu “Misty Green” have a gentle fresh green and almost candy-like fragrance. The brewed liquor has a very light champagne colour and a clean, slightly grassy and vegetal aroma. The light processing results in a taste that is crisp, tangy and light, with a sweet and slightly corny aftertaste. There is no astringency and very little dryness in this tea, but there are notes that are reminiscent of blackcurrant leaves, with a fresh and sharp presence. The resulting cup is refreshing and easily enjoyed.

Serving tips

For this tea we suggest trying the Gong Fu-style of brewing. The idea behind it is to use a high tea leaf to water ratio and very short infusions. By using more tea leaves and very short infusions, we extract only parts of the full flavor spectrum. This means that this way of brewing lets you taste the tea in “sections”, which makes for a much more nuanced experience. because the flavor unfolds gradually and since a lot of leaf is used, those flavors are also significantly more intense than in western-style brewing.
