  • Inside Story

    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. Interestingly, 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. If you age a portion of Yue Guang Bai it will become more complex and smooth over time, like a good wine.

  • Ambience

    Leaf: Big, light and fluffy deep purplish leaves with beautiful silver pekoe buds. Floral aroma mingling with fresh mint, vanilla and clove spice.
    Infused leaf: Huge, silvery buds and coppery leaves releasing the aroma of clove, rose and eucalyptus.
    Liquor: Full-bodied, pristine cup with colour of ripe mandarin. Deliciously smooth and sweet vanilla, apricot mouth-feel with no astringency and heavy rich creaminess. Pleasantly wild and uplifting liquor with a delicate after-taste of wild roses and clove spice.
    Contain: 100% White loose leaf tea from China
