The first observation I had of this tea is the wonderful deep and even color of the leaves. The aroma of the dried leaves is very pleasant and slightly vegetal. After steeping, I noticed that the color is very light, but the aroma and taste is more bold than expected, with a strong but still pleasant and smooth taste. Overall an excellent green tea that is on the fuller and bold side.

The aroma of the tea (which is also known as Clouds and Mist Tea) is a blend of nutty and vegetal, it has a bit of spinach, some toasted sesame, a distinct yet mild roasted peanut note, a sharp note of artichoke, and a finish of raw asparagus. It smells super green, and very fresh, like a pile of vegetables right out of a garden...and like someone is roasting nuts in the kitchen.

First steeping, and wow, this tea is not mild, it packs quite the vegetal punch! It starts out sweet and nutty, like roasted peanuts and a hint of honey. Then boom, sharp asparagus, slightly bitter yet leafy kale, crisp bok choy and bell peppers, and a surprisingly sweet finish, kind of like the sweetness of carrots without the taste of carrots.

More steeps occurred!

Extremely satisfying tea! I really like this one. The dry leaf had a wonderful, unique aroma that made me very excited to try the tea. Once brewed, it has a light herbal/spicy flavor that I find extremely pleasing and that is well balanced with the tea flavor. It's a comforting drink that I could imagine myself drinking pretty much any time, and with or without food.

It's a bit pricey on the website; however, I made a pretty loose teaspoon in a kettle that makes about 2 1/2 cups. It looked potentially thin after brewing, but while I certainly wouldn't object to a stronger flavor, I also didn't think the tea tasted weak. I have yet to try my second cup. As long as that second brewing is decent, I'd say this is well worth the price. I'll have to mull it over again, though, once I've had time to let my "tea high" waft away. :-D

With this tea you DON'T want to leave it warming. You want to drink it fresh and take it off heat after brewing. Leaving it with the warming function on (as in some of the fancier kettles) is something I'll often do, but in this case it seems to change the flavor. So making just enough for yourself or for the people around is best.

Additionally, you do NOT want to overbrew this one if you aren't a fan of bitterness in tea. Recently I made a cup but left the leaf in the tea for far too long, which resulted in a decidedly bitter cup. Stick to relatively brief steeping times.

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.

I can't even begin to describe how good the leaf of this tea smells...it's nutty, toasty, and vegetal, and I just want to stick my nose in it. I guess this is the freshness of drinking 2014 tea shortly after harvest and production. It's bold and simple but but very pleasing. The leaf is also beautiful, a thin, wiry leaf that is quite curly.

Upon brewing, a little more subdued, but powerful under the surface. This is a tea that I'd expect to look dark in color because it is so strong tasting, but the cup is very clear and pale.

Flavor is strong: more bitter than sour, but slightly sour as well. Aroma is toasty and nutty, with some grassy and vegetal notes. Toasty without being smoky. Hints at floral qualities but I wouldn't describe it as floral. Moderate astringency, enough to make it quite full-bodied but never too much. Brisk.

This is the third Yun Wu (cloud mist) green tea I've tried, but the other two I think were from different regions. This tea was similar to both, but it also reminds me a bit of another wiry Jiangxi green tea I had some time ago from Upton Tea Imports, called Wuyuan Ruikang Hairpoint.

Easily steeps two cups, even if the first infusion is long...a third cup was a little too weak for me.

I loved this tea and could see myself drinking it in quantity. Very crisp and refreshing. I thought the price on this tea was expensive though...it's nearly $20 for 100 grams, and similar teas have been much cheaper in price. Although I do think the quality on this tea is better than anything else I've tried, I don't know if it's better enough to justify the price. Upton's tea was still pretty good, and was also organic certified. I also had a dirt cheap Yun Wu from San Francisco Herb Company, again, not as good as this one, but I'd hesitate to pay the premium for this tea because, while better, it wasn't that much better, and it is a lot more expensive.
