Cloud Peak should ideally be made with cooler water - about 80⁰. It can also be cold brewed. For cold brewing with cold or room temperature water reduce the amount of tea leaves to 1 teaspoon (2g) per 300 ml.
The traditional way to make living tea is to use a small pot with a generous amount of leaves. The leaves are then used for multiple, short infusions. Living tea made this way brings out all of its taste, vibrancy and complexity.

Regulates the Upper Jiao. Nourishes Lung Yin. Moistens Dryness AND Dries Fluids (see below)
The energetic nature of Cloud Pass is the perfect example of the alchemical nature of a living tea. Brewed at a lower temperature (anywhere from 10⁰ - 80⁰) it brings fluids, moisture and cooling to the Upper Jiao.
Brewed at a higher temperature (85⁰-95⁰) its nature changes and it becomes more Warming, Drying and Dispersing. This unique energetic characteristic of Cloud Pass is the source of its name - the morning mist of a high mountain pass is cooling, condensed and refreshing, yet as soon as the sun emerges and the temperature rises in the mist begins to disperse.
