Moonlight White Tea
We really love this tea. It makes such a difference when a tea is family-made in one of the best tea growing areas in the world. We stayed with the farmer, Yubai and her family for a few days last year and found them to be wonderfully hospitable. We are pleased to offer their teas to you.
Known as "Yue guang bai" this tea is air dried and left to bask in the moonlight on Jing Mai Mountain in remote Yunnan Province over night. You'll like this tea for its delicate taste and mouth feel. We've let this lot age for a while and it's taking on a sweetness and nice umami not found in the leaves when they are just harvested. Take your time and brew it at lower temps.
We suggest you get as much as you can because you can age this tea and taste it getting better and better over the next several years.
This lot is from Spring/Summer of 2016.
Brew this "Grandpa style" with lower temps (or guess about 2 tbs of leaf in 8 oz water at 180° for around 3 min.) Enjoy!
