Our most appreciated white tea, in a special stone-pressed format.
The round cake immediately recalls to the mind the real meaning of Yueguangbai: the "Moonlight white tea" is made using an extremely delicate drying process which only happens in the shadow. Just like moonlight phases, the pure leaves, always shaded from direct sunlight, take on different hues that range from the brightness of the white buds to the dark shadows of the apical leaves.
The 2020 harvest is particularly mineral and complex, and the round floral bouquet that comes from the soft leaves has a delicate purity that lingers in the aftertaste. The golden liquor shines with the first morning sunlight, while the long white buds - typical of dayezhong or "big leaf" cultivar - dance gracefully in the teapot.
