Moonlight White

Moonlight White is made with minimal processing, relying mainly on natural withering.Due to drought conditions this year, the fresh tealeaves 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 its 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 using more leaf, a guywan and prepare using gong fu cha method, similar to making pu-erh.
