Ancient Artisan Moonlight White Tea

Handpicked and processed on the full-moon this is an actual Yue Guang Bai (Moonlight White) from ancient tea trees dating back as old as 400 years old in the high mountains of Yunnan. The locals believe this special tea holds a unique energy and spirit from the phase of the moon. The production method is a closely guarded, mysterious secret spanning hundreds of years; only the local tea masters know it. The tea gets its name comes from its unique shape and color. On one side of the leaf it is white and on the other is a shadowy black, like the moon, as if the moon shines on tea bud.

This tea is only harvested between March to May in very limited quantities when the first buds and tender tea leaves emerge on the ancient tea trees. The cool spring weather gives the slow-growing buds a concentrated flavor and aroma. It is only in the spring season that the climatic conditions are present for the proper withering and curing of Ancient Moonlight White. It is delicately air dried. There are many ideas about what kind of tea a Yue Guang Bai (Moonlight White) is. The Yunnan people regard it as a white tea, but when pressed into cakes a Puer.

Moonlight white is easily one of my favorite teas from this company or from anyone. I love the subtleties that come to the surface with each successive steeping of this tea. This is an absolute go to afternoon tea for me. White tea is often overlooked; it is very high in antioxidants and it boosts immunity. Very beneficial for your health. It’s calming for the spirit and your mind. I take a break from afternoon work to enjoy tea and feel like there is absolutely nothing else that I would rather be doing than being in the present moment savouring this tea.
