Yue Guang Bai - sometimes translated as “Moonlight White” - is an unusual traditional Yunnan tea. While most large leaf assamica picked in rural Yunnan is sun-dried to make sheng pu’er mao cha, Yue Guang Bai (as the name suggests) is instead dried overnight. The large buddy leaves are covered with silvery down, creating a tea with an appearance similar to Bai Mu Dan. Xingyang has been experimenting with Yue Guang Bai, and pressed these organic leaves from their partner farmers in Jinggu at the end of 2016.
