Emperor's Clouds and Mist Green Tea from Teavana

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 2/5

This was the first of the new Teavana teas served in a Starbucks that I sampled. I thought it was a delightful tea, a great example of a high-quality Chinese green tea.

Brews a cup with a very pale liquor but a surprisingly strong flavor: flavor is both sweet and bitter, lightly sour, and with a strong savory or um...

Lu Shan Yun Wu Green Tea from TeaVivre

Style: Clouds & Mist (Yun Wu) – Region: Jiangxi, China

A brisk, potent green tea that I found was equally good for morning or afternoon drinking. I can't see everyone liking this, as many Americans seem to prefer milder tasting green teas, but this is my type of tea.

Dry leaf, slightly curved and with a dark green color, has a mild aroma, suggestive of sweetness, but upon brewing, the tea is much more bitter, in a pleasant, cooling way.

San Xia Cloud Mist Green Tea from Simpson & Vail

Style: Clouds & Mist (Yun Wu) – Region: Jiangsu, China

73 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Jun. 12th, 2012

An unusual tea among Chinese greens, almost reminiscent of some green teas from Darjeeling and elsewhere in the the Himalayan region.

Dark, curled dry leaf with little aroma.

Brewed cup has a dark brownish-green liquor, very clear. Simpson and Vail describes this tea as vegetal, with a fresh spinach aroma, and I...

Huang Shan Yun Wu (Yellow Mountain Cloud) from Life in Teacup

Style: Clouds & Mist (Yun Wu) – Region: Huangshan, Anhui, China

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5

Another sample from Life in Teacup, this is my kind of tea: a classic Chinese pan-fired green tea wild a bold flavor. This tea looks typical at first, but as I started experimenting with brewing it, I found it had a lot of personality.

After a few trials, I found that I achieved the best results for my tastes by us...
