Yue Guang Bai - White Moonlight Tea DGStoreUK

Yue Guang Bai - White Moonlight

£ 5.49

In China, this tea is also known as ‘Yue Guang Bai’ (月光白) or 'Yue Guang Mei Ren' (月光美人, Moonlight Beauty). The raw leaves of this tea are from Jinggu cultivar trees in Yunnan Province that are used for producing the region’s numerous pu-erh teas. To create this delicious tea carefully hand plucked young shots were withered, pan fried and dried in the sun.

The fragrance of the dry tea leaves is fresh and the infusion tastes smooth, sweet, soft with woody notes, fruity and floral aspects to the flavour. The aroma and texture of this tea reminds one of an aged white tea. Yue Gung Bai also has this very recognisable pu erh flavour from Yunnan province. Because aged white teas are more popular in China than fresh white teas, the Moonlight White is also often classified as a white tea.

This tea is sometimes classified as a pu-erh due to production methods. Generally we think that it is still a white tea since it has been left loose. If this tea was pressed into bricks, we would be more inclined to call it a pu-erh tea.

Yue Guang Bai white tea is also a mildly fermented tea (due to indoor wilting). This wilting process is longer than traditional fresh white tea, but closer to aged white tea cakes. Therefore, you can brew many more infusions relative to fresh white and green teas.

A great drink.

This was my first white tea. I drink a lot of black leaf tea and I saw an article on white tea. I had bought from DG Store previously and searched their site choosing this tea after a bit of research. I have found this tea has multiple characters. A freshly made pot has a lightness of colour with mild smooth floral sweetness which gains depth of flavour and more malty, earthiness after three to four minutes brewing. When I turn to it I am not disappointed. As usual speedy and secure service with the tea packed safely.
