2011 Waning Crescent Pu-erh 雲南 2011 月光白

silky & delicate

Waning Crescent Pu-erh is name mainly from the production method. This tea is a kind of pu’er tea that adopts special production process. Its blade surface is black while the blade back is white, black alternating with white. The pekoes of the buds and leaves revealed white just like a crescent moon. The bud with the two leaves whole looks just like the moon in night, This tea is also known as White Moonlight.

The tea liquor colour is bright green yellow. it is amber at first brew and become red in the subsequent brews, and turns to amber again. It will be brighter and clearer with repeated brews.

The lingering fragrant aroma is refined and elegant in the first sip of the tea. it provides a honey fragrance and then it smells like elegant fruit fragrance. With the increase of the brew, the tea fragrance seems to vary delicately. With full mellow taste, enjoy the mildness, mellowness and the lingering aroma on tongue and lasting sweet aftertaste.

This sweet and savory tea, from OMGsrsly, is way too easy to drink. It’s been a while since I’ve had puerh or done short concentrated steeps with a tea all day long, but this tea never punished me for it. There was even a moment where I may have forgotten it for a bit (5 minutes), but it remained relatively delicious.

The flavour profile reminds me somewhat of Butiki’s White Rhino tea and coffee cake. Not bad.

Flavors: Coffee, Hay, Honey

ooooooh tea from omgsrsly I think i’m going to be drinking this one for the rest of the day. I pulled this one out for a hope at something a little more exciting. this is sweet, haylike, with a hint of bitterness should you steep it for too long. i am quite enjoying this one and i’m curious as to how it will fare for the rest of the day. Plus, the leaves are really pretty! more to come later i hope.

This tea is beautiful – the dry leave are just amazing to look at – the wet leaves are just so pretty. I don’t think I should be drinking this one tonight. I was drinking another moonlight tea yesterday that was just spectacular. I think this is paling in the shadow of the other one rather than showing how good it really is. If I had tried this one first I would be raving about it, but IMHO it’s not as good as the other.

OMGsrsly recently wrote about this with words like savory and umami. While I’m not disagreeing with that – those aren’t the words I would choose. The problem is that I’m not quite sure what the right words are. Sheng, sweet, green. hay, lets start with those. Given a cup of this blind – there is no doubt it’s pu’erh – but it’s really mild and that mustiness goes away in later steeps. It is sweet, but later in the sip. It’s not astringent, or bitter, but these is a little sharpness to it.
I like it, I would happily drink more of it – but if I had to choose, the other one all the way.

Thank you so much OMGsrsly for sharing both these amazing teas with me. (I might need you to pick up more of these for me in the future….)

No problem, really. I mean, I have a whole cake I can share. :D The amount of leaf I use ends up filling my gaiwan or pot after a couple steeps. Haha. That might be why I got different flavours.

Dexter

I used the whole 5g sample of this one in my glass teapot, have been drinking it all night – getting sweeter as it goes – I’m going to put the leave in the fridge to cold steep…

OMGsrsly

I’m still drinking mine from last night. If I get up I make Mandala Silver Buds (in the kitchen) and if I’m sitting, I make this one (on my desk). Haha. They taste very different and I think I prefer silver buds out of these two, but the Moonlight over both.

Dexter

This one just keeps getting better and sweeter… I like it more now than I did when I wrote that – it’s really getting grapey really fun.

OMGsrsly

Yeah, I’m noticing that as well. I wasn’t expecting as many steeps as I’ve gotten, and I’m quite happy.

Ubacat

Sounds like a good one.

sirturtletheknight

I was actually given a cup of this blind and thought it was white tea! Not sure which steep number but it was so sweet.

OMGsrsly

I would honestly consider it more of a white than a sheng puerh. I’ve read that these teas are more for drinking than for aging.

Dexter

Yep I agree – some companies call them pu’erh but I think of them as white tea (or aged white).

Possibly shouldn’t be enjoying this one so close to bedtime.

Still. The sweetness called. I also had to pack some up for MissB. :)

Lots of leaves, short steeps. Yum.
