云雾 (Yun Wu)
Gongshu, Zhejiang, China
Under the watchful eyes of the Yuangsheng tea producers of Gongshu District, Zhejiang this delicate green tea is created to impart its renowned buttery aroma. The tea grown here has this distinct flavour in part due to the combination of its rich river waters, resulting soil type, hilly typography, humid subtropical climate and of course, the valley mist that blanket the tea bushes here.
No deliberate oxidisation process takes place. Once withered, the tea is rolled and lightly baked to create its signature deep green curls. Yun wu is grown mainly in Zhejiang and neighbouring Jiangxi province where similar lush forested terrains are present.
