2023 Yueguangbai White Tea, Ancient Tree Stone-pressed cake
In this Yueguangbai, the tea cultivar native of Mount Pasha proves its valuable aromatic potential again, just like it impressed our palate in the tea from harvest 2022.
The complexity of fragrances and the depth of taste is found here again to enrich our Yueguangbai harvested and produced this early Spring.
The beautiful leaves handpicked at the end of March disclose an abundance of nuances of perfumes, flavours and colours that tell about the ages lived by the ancient trees on Mount Pasha, feeding on a wild nature that follows its own flow.
We pressed these leaves to let them continue building their fragrance over time and to preserve the fresh and colourful beauty of Springtime.
When brewed, these leaves reveal an harmonious sweetness that finds a gentle balance with floral notes of white wild flowers and fruity notes of juicy apricots ripened under the sun. The mouthfeel is immediately smooth and velvety, while the tea body goes from a light, clear transparency to a deeper and darker gold.
Usually destined to make Pu'er tea, Pasha cultivar gives a unique and powerful white tea, with an outstanding character and an impressive layered intensity. Perfect to drink fresh in the same season and to let it get even richer with the passing of time.

Our tea production
This tea comes from the tea forest we own in Yunnan, in Nannuo and Lunan/Pasha mountain.
We take care of each leg of the production: from the care of the under-forest until package and distribution.
Generations of masters
Our production is entirely supervised by Yan Kunli, that was born and raised on Nannuo mountain, and in 2007 won the Pu'er Shengpu producer competition for the highest Shaqing skills, among all the Hani minority in Yunnan. He is the master in his craft, and we are proud to have him with us.
