About This Tea

This micro lot of Yue Guang Bai (White Moonlight) is an early spring white tea from Yunnan that is expertly produced according to the style of Fujian White Peony King (Mu Dan Wang). For this project we worked with our long-term partners in the western area of Yunnan’s Wa Autonomous Region. We commissioned the white tea to be grown organically and scented with Yu Lan magnolia flowers native to eastern China where it symbolizes purity and nobility and is renowned for its transportive and intense aromatics. The method of scenting this tea is similar to jasmine tea processing where fresh aromatic flowers infuse the tea to create a candied, multi-floral and heady scent. This white tea itself is naturally sweet but the additional scenting provides a floral honey and nectar like sweetness unlike other teas. Some flower buds may be present and should be brewed with the tea leaves. The strength of this mountain tea comes out through several rounds of infusion while the flower scenting aromas and sweetness really evolve throughout the brewing session.
