Cloud Mist green tea gets its name from where it grows on Lushan Mountain in China, up in the clouds and mist. Tea leaves grown in shade like these are known for having a distinct umami (or savory) flavor.
This Chinese green tea has long and wiry leaves that benefit from a long steep, and turn a beautiful green hue in the cup. So delicate in flavor we call it an "afternoon sipper", full of subtle sweet tones like wheatgrass and clover.

I basically got this because I was so intrigued by a green tea with a ten minute brew time that doesn't get bitter, and it definitely exceeded my expectations. It's very delicate, smooth, almost sweet with hardly any vegetal or grassy flavor and no bitter aftertaste whatsoever (make sure your water is not too hot). Typically, I go for the full bodied teas but this is wonderful.
