The fresh leaves of this Yueguangbai white tea were delicately picked from the Nannuo mountain-wild forest side of our land, harvested during the first week of May 2017, and pressed at the end of August 2017. The infusion releases a surprising sweetness, and a subtle underwood aroma that is typical of the wild forest tea trees, enriched by the mellow notes of the fermentation process which has been going on for three years. 

The delicate leaves are darker than other harvests, yet a light silver shade emerges, indicating the presence of pure white buds, that give this tea a peculiar light flavour, and a great delicacy. They were pressed by stone, to guarantee the best leaf quality both now and in the years to come. The pressed format is the best way to ensure a perfect conservation over the years, and the beautiful bamboo tong is an affordable alternative for storing a bigger quantity of this rare and special white tea.
