From Yunnan Sourcing

We are proud to offer a Certified Organic White Tea from Yunnan. This tea was grown in the area of Simao and was harvested in April 2017.

This “Moonlight White” White Tea (月光白) is a Chang Ye Bai Hao varietal growing at and altitude 1260 meters (4150 feet) near Mulihe Village on Wan Zhang Mountain (just west of Pu’Er City). The processing is typical, using “room temperature” air-drying (晾干). There is very little withering and when brewed the tea leaves have a green/yellow color.

The tea brews a golden yellow tea soup that is thick, full-bodied with a creamy viscous mouth-feel. The tea is sweet like sugarcane with hints of wheatgrass. There a bit more vegetal character to this tea as compared to the Silver Needles White, giving this tea a bit more depth. This tea can be brewed 6 to 8 times gong fu style.

Our Yunnan Sourcing Certified Organic teas are certified organic by EcoCert SA and are certified organic to international standards (EcoCert is IFOAM accredited).

(gongfu). Dry, this tea has a beautiful mixed white and black appearance depending on if you’re looking at a bud or a leaf. ~80C steeping.
In early steeps, this tea is extremely thick, hydrating and refreshing, not astringent whatsoever. This was a very vibrant sweet sugarcane taste (turns out that’s what’s advertised). In later steeps, an aroma of freshly steamed green vegetables emerged, with some savoriness and astringency. This is a great-tasting sweet white tea, I highly recommend this to anyone who likes milder white teas with body
