White Moonlight  
White tea, China

Flavour: Floral, berry, sun-dried hay ~ light-bodied & fragrant 
This unique Spring 2021 tea is harvested from wild-growing tea plants in Mangshi county, Yunnan province, southwest China. It is simply wilted, then dried in a wind tunnel.

The dark purple hues in the leaf indicate the presence of healthful antioxidant Anthocyanin, also found in other purple fruit and vegetables. This nutrient adds a berry sweetness to the tea, which you can first discover by smelling the dry leaves. This is a fun, fragrant, light-bodied white tea with an intricate cascade of notes: lavender, rose, sun-dried hay, black and red currants and a hint of pine needle. The tea mellows with each subsequent infusion.

White Moonlight works well hot or cold-brewed in sparkling water.

Preparation: 

Hot steep: for 3 minutes at 85°. Three infusions.

Cold-brewed in sparkling water: add 1 gram of dry leaves per 100mls into a bottle of sparking water. Pop in the fridge for two - three hours then strain.
