Yunnan Yue Guang Bai Air-Dried White Tea
Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Tea Shop
This is a special tea made from Yunnan Large Leaf varietal tea in Jinggu. The tea is picked in early spring season (March), wilted slightly and then dried with warm wind tunneled through the tea until it is dry. The tea shares a somewhat similar look and taste with white tea when it is young but over time will develop into something closer to red tea (hongcha).
Yue Guang Bai 月光白 means "Moonlight White" which is another name that refers to this tea!
The taste is sweet and thick with malty tones and the tea can be brewed 7 or 8 times before losing its flavor.
Production period: Middle of March
