The White Moon, also known as Yue Bai Guan, is an exceptional blend, as it has very soothing and aromatic properties, while offering an endless amount of health properties. This Fresh Puerh has its roots in the old tradition of the Yun Nan Region where the locals are dedicated to cultivating and finding new blends of its most popular teas, the Puerh.

I’m glad to be at work today. Well, I am kind of just glad to be. Ok, it’s not that serious. It stormed all night. Usually that knocks me out, but last night I couldn’t sleep. It was very dark and pouring this morning, when I left home. The lightning was awesome. I live on a one lane road about a half mile off the highway. This morning it was like driving through the jungle. Leaves, limbs, puddles. Puddles? Puddles! I haven’t seen one of those in ages. Now they are everywhere. I get to the highway, thinking I got it made, except the road is so black and wet. There is steam hovering just above the pavement. Am I in my lane? Am I going to drive into the ditch? I don’t know. I can’t see… Here comes a car. Now I really can’t see. I hope they can. Then the lightning strobes and it lights the world up like daylight for a moment. Followed by the dark. My eyes aren’t adjusting fast enough. What a ride. Made it safely. I need tea.

I started this one yesterday. I wanted to continue steeping it today before recording it on Steepster. Yesterday I had three mugs from 1 ½ wooden spoons of leaf. It looks like white tea and tastes pretty much like white peony but a little bolder. Each cup has gotten a bit more complex and sweeter. The third is the first to develop any mild puerh characteristics.

Today starting at mug number 4. This has wonderful creamy feel. The taste has a mild nuttiness. It is no longer white tea but has morphed into warm earthy tones. There is no hint of bitterness or astringency. This is just mellow goodness. Mug 5 (all 12oz) continues with a some of the white tea traits returning. Pretty sure this would go another round but I am stopping here.

If you like white tea and are terrified of puerh, then this is your tea. I know you hear that all the time. I am serious. There is nothing scary or unfamiliar about White Moon, and it just happens to be really good.

Thank you Helen at In Nature Tea for this wonderful sample.
Longer review, without the car ride, should be on my blog tomorrow.

I liked the car ride, it made the drinking of the tea grounded. I imagined your state of mind and the comfort of holding the warm Puerh after being thrilled and scared from Mr. Toad’s wild ride!

nooooo, you gotta leave the car ride— I can almost smell the damp mud, it’s a thriller, and it sets the scene !

Ok, the story stays. I posted the review with the car ride.
