Moonlight White Tea is a premium white tea grown in Yunnan province. It is a mixture of whitish buds and fermented dark young leaves, and the appearance reminds of the crescent moon in the sky, which has given the name Organic Moonlight White.
Taste and appearance
The brewed tea has a light orange color. The tea releases subtle fruits scents and has honey-like sweetness with hints of gingery taste.
While all varieties of tea are considered healthier alternatives to coffee, white tea is believed to have the highest level of antioxidants. Also, white tea is one of the least processed teas. Like other high quality white tea, it offers several health benefits. The catechins in white tea also slow down the aging process while flushing out toxins from the body.
Add about three grams of Moonlight White tea leaves in 150 ml of water between the temperature of 85-90 degrees Celsius. The tea should be steeped between 2-3 minutes, and not more than 5 minutes. It is recommended that you use a Gaiwan to brew the tea, to release all its flavors to the fullest.
