The name Moonlight relates to the unusual look of the leaves of this exclusive white tea.
The impressive dark leaves represent the dark sky at night whereas the velvety lighter leaves symbolize the moon.
The opened, darker leaves are particularly large and the precious buds show plenty of fluffy, silvery white ‘pekoe’.
Yunnan Moonlight leaves are exclusively harvested in summer when the plant is growing at full power.
The first brew has lovely velvety chocolate nuances that cocoon the floral taste with fine, soft cocoa notes.
Repeat brewing will yield more gentle sweetness that harmonizes well with the subtle cocoa hints.
