This is a stone-pressed version of our Ancient Trees Yueguangbai White Tea, meant to be kept with you for the years to come. The first time we have tasted this tea a few years after we produced it, the intensity that hits our palate went straight to our hearth, with a slightly amber color infusion, and an intense sweetness gently mixed with an under-forest taste, made of aromatic wood and flowers scent. Each cake is stone-pressed, and it is intended to be consumed from 6-12 months after the productions, or to be aged for all the time you wish.
Harvested in Spring 2019
These ancient tea tree leaves have been dried with a natural and very delicate procedure that causes them to become half black and half white, the distinctive feature of Yueguangbai, or "white moonlight" in English. The brew is a subtle yellow color which varies in tone depending on the succession of brews. Its flavor is redolent of forest flowers and autumn fruits.
Although elegant, this white tea is rich and multifaceted in a manner that only tea hailing from the high mountain forest can be. The production of these ancient tea tree leaves is simple yet complex: though it takes only a few steps to produce this tea, it relies heavily on human sensitivity and experience.
