Today I am reviewing a Moonlight White Tea (Yueguangbai 月光白) from DiginTea.
Tea: Yue Guang Bai (Moonlight White Tea)
Tea Varietal: Yangta Da Bai Cha
Vintage: Autumn, 2020
Origin: Yangta Village, Jinggu, Yunnan, China
Amount of Tea: 1/4 Mini-Cake
Brewing Vessel: Small Glass Pitcher
Type of Water: Spring Water
Rinse Time: 15 Seconds
Steep Time: 30 Seconds – 40 Seconds – 50 Seconds
The tea is comprised of broken leaf material, rather than whole leaf.
Has a slight honey taste, with a bit of earthiness, light floral notes and a little bitterness.
A soft sweetness sticks to the back of the mouth, but it’s not as pronounced as it could be for this type of tea.
Flavor notes: Meadow hay, field flowers, honey, malt, and moderate to strong astringency.
