  • Origin

    Xiao Tian Chi, Lu Shan, Jiang Xi, China (~900m elevation)

  • History and Significance

    Yun Wu originates from a scenic mountain, Lu Shan, with the top micro-lot being Xiao Tian Chi with over 3000 feet in elevation. It is exceptionally foggy year-round and at all times throughout the day, not just in the mornings. For a tea region that is relatively north, this elevation is impressive – that tea can survive this extreme climate is a miracle. Lu Shan Yun Wu remains one of China's "tribute" teas, with selected batches reserved for high officials and visiting diplomats.
