Moonlight White

from 3.00

Coming from the mountainous Qingmenkou village in Pu’erh, this Yunnan White tea is hand made on a small 2 Hectare farm by Liu Ying. Sun dried and rolled into 8 Gram balls, white teas like this are perfect for aging, and will only get better over time! The transitional flavors of Orchid, Artichoke, and Chestnut develop with each consecutive steeping to a rich, heavy bodied floral tea.

Notes from Johan:

Liu Ying, I can honestly say, is one of the most enjoyable people to spend time with. When we first met, she sat down with me at Torch Coffee in Pu’erh and told me all about how she got here. Coming from the International Finance industry in Beijing, she retired around 2012, and decided she wanted to live on a tea farm, and learn to produce the teas that she loved so much. fast forward a few years, and she is producing teas for her friends and family, who are grateful to have a source of quality, transparent, organic teas. While Liu doesn’t produce high quantities of tea, she is excited to share her teas and culture with us through these limited offerings.
