Mild and approachable, the White Moonlight tastes pretty similar to certain wulongs; it lacks the astringency of your typical sheng pu’er. The 800 year old “mother bush” that gave seed to these White Moonlight bushes still stand today in Yunnan, a province known for producing pu’er tea and sweet Chinese dates. The terroir here is pretty unique—areas near the White Moonlight plots are surrounded by popular local crops—a lot of times, mango—that contribute to the taste and aroma of this tea.
