Moonlight White Pu'erh, purchased from Bana Tea Company
2007 vintage from last spring harvest
Raw pu'erh, Grade 1
Production area: Xishuangbanna Prefecture, Yunnan Province
Beautiful dried leaves with a mixture of pale yellow green and black, showing the slight oxidation present. The write-up on Bana Tea's website reads:
Like the aroma, the taste started with a light sweet fruit across the tongue. With subsequent infusions the fruit would linger off with echoes of coffee and eventually woods. The aroma of the leaves stayed predominantly nectarine but by later infusions started to reveal some sweet caramel.
My cat decided I was paying too much attention to my tea session so she inserted herself onto my lap and did some reading on the internet :)
