The first time we tasted this tea a few years after we produced it, the intensity that hit our palate went straight to our heart, 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 production or to be aged for all the time you wish.
Harvested by hand in Spring 2019
These ancient tea tree leaves have been withered and 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.
