From Yunnan Sourcing

This tea was grown in the area of Simao and was harvested in April 2018.

This “Moonlight White” White Tea (月光白) is a Chang Ye Bai Hao varietal growing at and altitude 1260 meters (4150 feet (1264.92 m) (1264.92 m)) 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.

Certified organic by EcoCert SA and are certified organic to international standards (EcoCert is IFOAM accredited).

Not a bad white tea, although not as unique in flavours as some other moonlight white teas I’ve tried. It’s possible I am not brewing this properly, will try adding more leaf next time to see. There is a definite a sort of sweetgrass flavour that comes through which is quite nice, and only adds to the already thick liquor.
