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 that varies in tone depending on the succession of brews. Its flavor is redolent of forest flowers and autumn fruits.
Harvested in Spring 2019
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.
