lu shan yun wu green tea

Skysamurai checks out Lu Shan Yun Wu from Teavivre. . . .

After reading my review go to the webpage listed before for this tea. It is packed full of great information regarding where the tea came from, how it was processed, and even how the climate affects the leaves. One who loves tea should also love to learn. . . . . Let’s start off with the dry leaves. They have a truly unique aroma. Mainly chocolate and malt. If you were to pass this sample around I can guarantee you that only a few people would guess that it is not flavored. Knowing that these tea leaves are hand rolled Read More

  The weather is gloomy and my sinus infection is going in full swing! Today calls for a tea that makes you relax and enjoy the moment. When I first started drinking and experimenting with loose leaf tea, California Tea House was one of the first places I made an order. I can’t remember exactly what I ordered but I can remember being so confused on how to brew each variety and wondering if I would ever learn how to brew loose leaf. Now 10 years later, I yet again have the opportunity to try their teas. And this time, Read More
