Lu Shan Yun Wu tea (literally as Cloud and Mist), one of China’s top ten teas originates in Lushan Mountain in Jiujiang of China’s Jiangxi Province. Thanks to the humid climate, fertile soil, abundant rainfall, Lushan Mountain is very suitable for tea growing.
Lushan Mountain, known as “The most beautiful scenery in the world” is 1,543 meters above the sea level and towers over the southern bank of the Yangtze River, casting its shadows upon the Poyang Lake. The breathtaking scenery and the “Waterfall Clouds” make the mountain more mysterious and give the tea a poetic name “Cloud and Mist” (Yun Wu).
