A fascinating "White tea", hand picked from semi-wild, 100 year old tea trees in Jinggu Yunnan. The name Moonlight is derived from the beautiful contrasting colours of the tea leaves, this is not found in any other white tea. Picked before sunrise and withered indoors for around 48 hours- never exposed to sunlight and mildy fermented, this unusual tea is categorised as being somewhere between a white tea and a puerh. The taste is rich and of honey with hints of ripe cantaloupe, malt, slight floral notes, and a subtle earthiness- reminiscent wild mushrooms. Moonlight White is an extraordinary tea that can be enjoyed now or aged for years to come.
