Review of Jing Mai Moonlight White

8 of 104 of 55 of 580 of 100

Alex and I had very different experiences with this tea.I was only able to brew this once and I did so, following Gingko's instructions of water just off the boil, for about 1.5 minutes. I was totally surprised that the liquor was so dark, it looked like black tea, The aroma was on the nutty/vegetal end , with a slight hint of fruit that I couldn't put my finger on. The flavor to me tasted of raspberries and hazelnut and I really liked it. My husband thought it tasted like mulch, but he is prejudiced against white teas, so I am not sure how accurate that is.

This is definitely a strange and unusual tea. Have you seen the article on it that I wrote? It's now linked to as the style of this individual tea.

I definitely had not written the article yet at the time you posted this review. My experience with this tea was so fascinating, I found it so strange and different that I decided to research this style of tea a bit and I found it interesting. There's now a page on on this style of tea, and I've done my best to locate other sources of it and group them together in one place.
