    Yue Guang Bai is unusual white tea which is made from a wild bush varietal Camellia taliensis (a wild relative of Camellia sinensis) native to Yunnan province. The leaf is white on one side and deep purple from the other side. Because of this unique tea varietal, Yue Guang Bai is a true regional Yunnan speciality. This tea is picked through the night and then withered (air-dried) in the dark for very long time, which brings more complexity and flavour to the leaves. Natural oxidation also appears in the withering time, yet it is not as severe oxidation as in the processing of black tea (where the leaves are bruised in advance of the oxidation). This tea ages well as it is made from the same plant as Pu Er tea. Through the time it will become more complex and smooth just like a good wine.

  • Ambience

    Leaf: Huge, fluffy silver hairy buds and some purple-silver leaves. Sweet fragrance of cherry blossoms, strawberries and refreshing eucalyptus is rising from the well dried leaves.
    Infused leaf: The colour is very light green to reddish, leather-like colour. Aroma of creamy herbs, cloves and vanilla.
    Liquor: The cup has very soft hue of gold. The fragrance is floral & sweet; violets, sun-dried hay and honey like. Mouth-feel is rich, smooth, syrupy yet very delicate. Notes of strawberries, dried herbs (thyme, sage) a little earth note and eucalyptus honey are mingling on the palette. After-taste is absolutely outstanding; vanilla and honey with grabbing clove mouth-feel. No acidity, only a little astringency and multiple brewing makes this tea enjoyable and easy tea to drink.

"Litlle Poetry" by JD

"There he stands, slightly curved to the left, wrinkled with silvery green hair.
Drinking from a cup of immortality in this warm deep night
The liquor tastes so smooth, velvety, creamy and sweet, like the moon in the dark navy sky
He drinks cup after cup...was it five or was it twenty?
Time moves forward...
He straightens up like a young, vigorous birch tree in the spring
His hair is no longer silvery green, but a light mandarin colour, like a fire phoenix glowing in the dark
His skin is young, towards twenty, and it smells of sensual clove and eucalyptus
He holds a bouquet of white roses, looking deeply into my eyes. He is the one...
Forever... Immortal"
