From American Tea Room

Classic and captivating, Ancient Moonlight is organically grown and hand-harvested in Yunnan’s Da Yeh region during a short window of time each spring. It is a Bai Mu Dan-style white tea with paper-thin leaves and thick, velvety, shimmering buds in colors ranging from inkwell blue-black and espresso to walnut shell taupe and silver-sage. The woody aroma of the leaves only hints at the golden caramel infusion’s unusually rich, dense scents of ripe melons, fresh apricots, sweet honeysuckle and cut bamboo. Although Ancient Moonlight undeniably sweet, it is not sugary. Seductive fruit and floral notes of honeysuckle, cantaloupe, honeydew and sprite melon are balanced by a hint of Bing cherry and an earthy undertone reminiscent of a fine Darjeeling Second Flush. A thick-yet-clean mouthfeel and slight astringency give way to a fruity, cool, almost tingly finish with earthy notes and hints of golden raisin sweetness. This tea is certified USDA organic.

Wow, I do like this one. It’s been a few days since I had a white and I’ve missed them. This one hot is lovely, with the fruit notes coming out to blend well with the tea flavours, making it a tea I drank quickly. The second cup (not second infusion) I drank slower, and this one got cold by the time I was done. Cold the tea isn’t as lovely, the notes that make it sparkle are lost and it is more a generic white tea. But hot? Wow this one is a star. I wish I could afford to get more, but dang is it costly. Thanks to Indigobloom for sharing this one with me!
