About Moonlight White Tea:

The term “moonlight white” refers to the mix of leaves present in this style of tea — some leaves are dark and almost black like the night’s sky, while the buds are a pale moonlight color.

Pleasant and sweet with a smooth mouthfeel, this easygoing tea will provide multiple infusions while maintaining its flavor.

White teas are minimally processed and contain a considerable amount of down, a white-silvery hair, on the leaf buds. It is this down that gives the brew its smooth texture.

Ingredients: White Tea Leaves.

Flavor Profile:
