Moonlight White - Daqing Village, Jinggu, Yunnan 2019 - 1.5 oz.
With a stunning succession of notes, Moonlight White opens like a flower with sips that transform from fruit and melon to ethereal honey-rose. The processing is simple and minimal like most white tea by way of picking, withering and drying. Though, this particular tea is richer in flavor than most white tea because it comes from old-growth trees and consequently requires longer withering and drying than Silver Needle or Bai Mu Dan. The large, old trees, high altitude (1600 M) and unique processing impart a vaporous complexity, while still maintaining the delicate celestial nature of other white teas. We particularly enjoy Moonlight White in the Spring and Summer as it maintains a gently uplifting Qi, fresh briskness, refreshing depth and hydrating quality in the burgeoning seasonal heat.
