From The Tea Spot

Clouds and Mist organic green tea makes a lasting impression. Also known as ‘yunwu’, the subtle aroma that comes from its clear, golden yellow infusion is a compelling mixture of smoky, citrus and vegetal. Its earthy taste, reminiscent of sweet, roasted artichokes, is well-rounded, with a slight note of toasted pecans. Clouds and Mist is very structured in its flavor – assertive and smoky in forward body, and developing over time to a softly sweet, buttery finish – making it a perfect green tea for morning. The curly silver-speckled leaves are harvested in the spring from tender tea buds. Praised as ‘green gold’ for centuries, it is one of China’s traditional imperial tribute teas. Clouds and Mist takes its name from the seas of mystically shrouded peaks on which this prized green tea is grown, using USDA certified Organic farming methods. Brews well for three to four infusions.

I was picking out a tea when the skies blessedly split open and gave us some rain to end this miserable heat wave. This tea seemed apt. Thanks to Shelley_Lorraine for the sample! The dry leaves have a vegetal smell with a hint of sweetness. The pale yellow brew is vegetal and smoky, with a dry mouthfeel. That’s about all I have to say – I’m out of the habit of writing detailed tasting notes, but I’ll get back into it eventually.

Addendum: The second brewing is very buttery and a little tangy, with a tart aftertaste. Yummy.

Thanks to Amanda who gave me an opportunity to try this tea.
I am not familiar with this tea brand (tea spot?) but felt like drinking green tea so grabbed it. I brewed it for three minutes and it is somewhat interesting flavor… there is bit of bitterness at the end but it is surprisingly good. As described this tea felt vegetal and smoky. Overall I liked it!

Clouds and Mist is my recent go to green tea, for its freshness, great flavor and reasonable cost. Its dry appearance is of curly needle shaped leaves, with a deep green hue. Its dry aroma is mildly vegetal. I have found this is a great tea for me to steep twice. My first steeping is 1 1/2 minutes at about 170 deg starting temp. When steeping, the vegetal aroma from the leaves really pops, and is almost off putting. Once steeped, the tea itself has only a mild vegetal aroma that blends with a sweeter floral aroma. The flavor is a delicately sweet and typically green tea flavor. I steep for a second time about 2 1/2 min at 175-180deg. The flavor is slightly more bitter, but a slightly stronger sweetness to accompany it. Honey can be a great addition to this tea, but can overpower it. I personally like it without any additions.

Sample Sipdown! (5 | 74)

I think this may have been left over from a past Sips By box? Unsure though…

Anyway, it’s a very robust Chinese green tea. It has strong vegetal and umami notes that rival sencha, as well as a hint of seaweed. But there’s also the harsher mineral and smoke flavors that are also found in gunpowder green tea. And at the end of the sip, a dry apricot note that I often find among Chinese greens.

It’s a bit too heavy for me, as while I do enjoy vegetal green teas, I don’t often love the ones with smokier flavor profiles.

Sipdown (587)!

Once of those late night sipdowns that kind of kicks your ass; not because of the flavour but because of the amount of caffeine consumed right before bed. I guess I’ll never learn. Doomed to repeat my crazy tea mistakes…

This was fine flavour wise; kind of beany and grassy. Not the best or the worst. Another one that is just better off removed from my cupboard.

Inexpensive green that I initially did not like. I found, after quite a bit of trial and error, to brew a cup to my liking I had to do a rinse of the leaves then a short 30-45 second steep. This method made a pretty good if basic cup of green. It is slightly smoky with a vegetal touch that I actually enjoy. Second steep for about 1.5 minutes, and even a third (about 2 minutes) but the last steep is kind of washed out. This type of tea you can drink anytime without much thought, kind of simple which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
