Our 2022 Blood Moon is a bit of an odd hybrid Yunnan tea. Picked and processed most similarly to yueguangbaior moonlight white tea that has been shade dried, this tea was also intentionally partially oxidized, about half way to being a black tea*. It's a unique tea that feels closer to an aged shade dried white, despite being freshly picked and processed in 2022.
The bright and clear soup is sweet and enduring, with a velvety softness and aromas that flit between vegetal and fruity. Soft strawberry flavors and grassy honey are at the forefront of its youth, though we suspect it will deepen and thicken up in the coming years. It's a beautiful experiment to experience.
Each cake is 200g. The cakes are in bamboo tongs, with five cakes per tong.
