China "Yue Guang Bai" White Tea
- ORIGIN: Yunnan, China
- DESCRIPTION: An air-dried white tea with large, tippy leaves covered with silver down. Yue Guang Bai, or "Moonlight White," is processed similarly to traditional Fujian white teas, but skips the de-enzyming or "kill-green" step and is just slowly air dried. As a result, this tea will change with age, tasting woody, floral, and fruity when young and developing a rich and bold maltiness with age.
- FLAVOR: Sweet, thick cup with an herbaceous body and malty tones. Notes of apricot in the finish.
