Yue Guang Bai

no_subtitle

What everyone secretly dreams of when they hear ‘white tea’, Yue Guang Bai rolls like a cloud over the tongue: cornsilk sweetness mingles with notes of mint and buttery fava beans. Produced from the larger-leafed Assamica varietal common in Yunnan, and being withered in darkness with warm air as opposed to sunlight gives this recently-innovated variety its name, meaning ‘moonlight white tea’. A delight of delights for those who enjoy delicate flavours—and for anyone who wishes for celestial dreams.

Compare with a black tea made from the same leaves, our Dian Hong.
