Description

Old Tree Yue Guan Bai, Moon Light White Pu’erh is a rare and unique white tea. Due to its production technique it is a tea which does not fall into one of the six true tea categories. Some consider it a white tea, some consider it a pu’erh. Yue Guan Bai (white moon light in Mandarin) was crafted by a Taiwanese man in Yunnan, using various tea craft production methods. Once the fresh leaves are picked; the tea is withered under the moon light until it is dry; unlike traditional pu’erh tea, which must be withered under the sun. Since it is withered for a significant time, it causes some oxidation of the interior enzymes. This unique process gives the tea liquor an aroma similar to black tea. You may be surprised to see the tea liquid becoming darker after several infusions! The dry leaf is floral, woodsy, and hay like in aroma; once steeped, the mouthfeel is almost syrupy, and there’s a slight nectar sweetness in the flavor.

This is how to do it:
1-1.5 TSP or 1 BAG
8oz / 200ml
190F / 85°C
3 - 4 min

This is an incredible tea for its value. The look of the dry leaf is whole and beautiful buds and leaves. Both the aroma and taste are bursting with an incredible complexity and depth. I find it so hard to believe the price of this tea. And absolutely bargain that any tea enthusiast must try!

Full-bodied, high-caffeine, floral and sweet white tea.

I use 3-4 grams in a gaiwan and I have yet to steep it enough times for it to lose flavor. There were a few occasions where it looked turbid and tasted pretty bad, but I think it may be because I took it with me on a plane.

Anyway, outstanding tea for the price.

This is an excellent white tea with malty undertones and a somewhat sweet taste and scent. I find that about 4-5 minutes steep time works best for optimal flavor. There is no bitterness with this tea whatsoever. Its has now become my primary daily tea.
