From JK Tea Shop

White moon light tea from Jinggu, is a kind a tea which does not fall into the six tea categories, due to its making techniques. Or to be more precisely, more people would like to define it as white tea; However, it also has its difference compared to white tea.

Invented by a Taiwan guy in Yunnan in 2003, this tea is made from big white hair big leaves tea trees from Jinggu. Only Jinggu has this type of tea trees, which is charaterized with silver tea hair. Its making process are summarized below: picking the fresh leaves; withering the tea leaves under the moon light to its complete dryness(unlike Pu Er tea, which must be withered under sun light); after the withering process is ok, then it is the finished product of white moon light tea. Since its witherness is conducted for a long time, it causes some interior oxidation by its interior enzymes. So that is why its tea liquid and aroma is so similiar to black tea. You will be surprised to see the tea liquid color turns to more and more red after several infusion.

As I’ve mentioned before, I am trying to reorganize my tea stash, and I’ve managed to uncover some teas that I’d forgotten I’d purchased. This is a tea I had purchased in 2010, but it remained sealed until this very night, so, it still tastes remarkably fresh given its age.

It is a very interesting tea, very light in taste, but it has a background that is much denser in flavor than the foreground. It almost starts off like water, but then the flavors develop on the palate. Sweet, earthy and unlike any white tea I’ve tasted before this. It tastes more like a weak black tea than it does a white tea.

Very interesting, and very enjoyable. It tempts me to watch the JK Tea Shop website for the 2012 harvest (although they are still offering the 2011 harvest on their site) to see how it compares.

I love finding “forgotten teas”

I can’t get over the name. How did they fit all that on the package? It’s like 3 tea names long.
