From Yunnan Sourcing

This is a Chang Ye Bai Hao varietal of tea from Jinggu that was processed into an air-dried black tea. Normally this varietal is processed into Moonlight White Tea (月光白), which is a classic Yunnan white tea.

Instead of processing into white tea, the wilting was allowed to progress for much longer, allowing the tea leaves to become brown in color (like Black tea). Then the next day the tea leaves are dried using air which is continuously circulated until the tea is fully cured.

The resulting tea has character of both black tea and moonlight white tea. Sweet, fruity, and thick, with no real bitterness and minimal astringency. Due to the simple no-heat processing this tea if kept sealed in a pouch or clay jar will age wonderfully!

I used about 5G of tea for my first tasting of this without washing it. I steeped initially for 5 s and added between 5 to 10 s per steep. This is mouthwatering it is so very light and refreshing. Notes of floral and sweetness. Absolutely delicious—a fan fave on my end !!

As I steeped in the floral taste dissipates and rounds out to become a deeper, richer and more full bodied taste of Black tea. Still very delicious—gets more complex the more I steep!!
