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!
