By the White Moonlight

Moonlight White

Moonlight White is made with minimal processing, relying mainly on natura withering. Due to drought conditions this year, the fresh tea leaves had less moisture and during processing, the tea dried at a faster rate, so this lot seems a bit less oxidized and has a noticeably fresher edge to it. Still, this tea has a distinctive fruity, melon, honey and a bit flowery character. It has a truly unique character of ancient cultivated assamica with specific fruity, honey and brisk character that differs from the more savory Fuding white teas. Prepare like white tea or try infusing more leaf, a gaiwan and prepare using the gong fu cha method, similar to making puerh.
This is the first time I have ever seen a white tea fly of the shelf this fast. Truly an amazing tea.
