Moonlight White Tea Coin (月光白幣, Yuè Guāng Bái Bì, "Moonlight White Tea Coin") - This tea is a western version of the classical white tea Bái Mǔ Dān 白牡丹 (“White Peony”). While the white tea process originates in Fujian on the east coast of China, the style has been applied to Pu'er plants in the west. By harvesting a high ratio of buds to leaves and allowing the tea to air-dry without being cooked, Yunnan tea farmers have created a robust white tea with large downy white buds that maintains the earthy, floral character of the Pu'er tea plants as well as the delicate, fluffy mouthfeel. The name Moonlight White refers to the silver appearance of the buds among the darker leaves, as well as the fact that it is dried outside overnight, presumably exposing it to the light of the moon. A clear, sweet, gentle tea with surprisingly pronounced Qi.

This standard size tea coin includes 7g of pressed tea. The base color of the wrapper is tan, indicating that it is a White Tea. The ring is white, indicating that this tea is made from standard leaves.

    Potent white tea

    Posted by Bence Varga on Apr 13th 2024

    A very pleasant white tea which, in addition to the expected floral and white grape aromas, shows several black and puerh tea notes, including caramel, cacao and icing sugar. Among the tea coins I have tried, this is one of my favourites. I was also surprised by its effect. I drank it in the evening as a lighter white tea, yet it completely took the sleep out of my eyes for hours. It seems that Yunnan teas, regardless of their type, have a more potent effect on us.
