Wild Purple Moonlight  
White tea, China

Dried rose petals blackcurrant, hint of honeysuckle
The dark purple hues in these leaves indicate the presence of the beneficial antioxidant Anthocyanin, also found in other purple fruit and vegetables, which adds a lovely berry sweetness to the tea, as well as a deeper colour to the liquor.

Harvested from wild-growing tea plants in the mountainous area of Hong Ni Tang village in south west China, this delightful 2019 spring harvest white tea emits a fragrance and flavour of dried rose petals and blackcurrant with a sweet hint of honeysuckle nectar.

Preparation: 

Hot steep: for 2 - 4 minutes at 85°. Three infusions.

Cold-brewed in sparkling water: add 4 grams of dry leaves to a small (approx 330ml) bottle of sparking water. Pop in the fridge for two - three hours then strain.
