Jinggu Imperial Yue Guang Bai White Tea of Yunnan * Autumn 2015
Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Tea Shop
This is a special tea made from Jinggu Yang Ta village Large Leaf varietal tea (Camellia Taliensis). The tea is picked in the late autumn, wilted slightly and then dried with warm wind tunneled through the tea until it is dry. The tea shares a somewhat similar look and taste with white tea when it is young but over time will develop into something closer to red tea (hongcha). The taste is sweet and thick with malty tones and the tea can be brewed 7 or 8 times before losing its flavor.
