Wild Purple Moonlight White Tea, Variant 2

Regular price $8.00 Sale

Here's another version of our Wild Purple Moonlight White Tea, which is similar in nearly every respect to our original Wild Purple Moonlight White Tea.

Like the other one, this is a purple varietal of Ye Sheng, wild grown in Yunnan. And like the other one, the tea is wilted briefly before being dried in a type of long wind tunnel tube.

Unlike the other one, this tea is harvested in Dehong, rather than Jinngu. It also came to us just a bit cheaper, allowing us to pass the savings on and offer a slightly lower price. 

The taste is a unique one, with fruity, floral, and sweet tastes blending over an undercurrent of quickly-fading bitterness. It responds well to aging and will develop a mellower, sweeter taste over time. 

Picked to a one leaf, one bud standard.

Harvested in April 2022.

We've had good results brewing this at around 190-195f. Your results may vary, so please feel free to experiment!
