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.
