The moonlight beauty tea is developed by the local Yunnan tea makers based on the continuous summarization and deepened understanding of the new trend of pu-erh flavor. It is a new breed of pu-erh tea. Made of the tender buds of large-leaf tea and processed with the method similar to that of Fuding white tea. Moonlight beauty tea has a rich bouquet and clear yellow soup broth. As for as taste is concerned, this tea has a smooth, pliable, sweet and fresh mouthfeel without any bitter note.
The taste of this tea is not as intense (strong) as raw pu-erh tea. Moonlight beauty tea is suitable for women or those tea lovers who prefer fresh, soft and smooth taste.
Moonlight White: This name comes from a special tea making procedure. Generally, the upper surface of the tea leaves treated with this procedure appear to be black while the the reverse side looks white, especially the buds, they appear as white as moonlight.
Legend says this tea was originally harvested by the local beautiful young girls at night and the whole processing procedure exposes minimum to the sun sight. So, the locals named it Moonlight beauty tea.
Menggu tea garden is located in Bulang Mountains, one of the most famous pu-erh teas producing area in Xishuangbanna, Yunnan. This region has long been known to the world for its advantageous natural conditions and rich resources. Under the careful management from the local experienced Bulang tea planters/makers, the teas produced from this land are high in quality and pursued by the tea lovers all over the world.
Menghai, the birthplace of pu-erh tea and Chinese tea, is located in southwest Yunnan Province. Till now, there are large numbers of wild ancient trees growing in Menghai, including the 1,700-year old ancient tree king. In addition, Menghai also abounds in rice and cane sugar and has the title of Southern Yunnan granary since ancient times. Nowadays Menghai becomes a state-level grain and sugar production base.
There was a beautiful legend connected to this tea in Bulang culture. Long long ago, there was a beautiful young Dai (the Dai nationality) princess living in Xishuangbanna. This kind-hearted princess has a beautiful name - Seven Princess. She was later married to a handsome young Bulang man for the friendly relations between the Dai nationality and the Bulang nationality. Seven Princess is not only beautiful but also intelligent. With her help, the Bulang people quickly learned how to plough and sow and make teas. Just because of this, she has been honored as the tea goodness of Bulang people. Later, in honor of her, moonlight beauty tea has been chosen as the tribute tea since people thought that this tea is the embodiment of Seven Princess’ wisdom and beauty.
Bulang people: The Bulang people have lived in Bulang Mountians for many generations .The Bulang nationality is traditionally associated with tea planting and the ancestors of Bulang people are thought to be the earliest tea growers and makers.

You're reviewing: Moonlight Beauty Raw Pu-erh Loose Tea
* Required Fields
Fragant and aromatic in smell and taste. Infusion has consistent thickness. Very pleasant tea which resembles silver needle white tea plus the aged note.
First I must say that I've only tried Pu-erh a couple of times. Both were aged and very strong.I didn't really like them. This tea is much lighter and more refreshing. I brewed my sample Gongfu style as recommended. The first steeping had a deep earthy flavor, something like old wood. Definitely tasted like Pu-erh. The color was pale pink, not really yellow. The second steeping brought out a more fruity flavor which I liked more. I got hints of plum and raspberry. The third steeping had a spiciness, cinnamon? The fourth steeping had an extraordinary sweetness which lasted through the remaining steeps.
This is a quite different type of tea, it is similar to white tea in a way that it is non-bitter and flowery. But because it has been fermented (pu-erh), it has developed a little more interesting aroma and taste. I would not drink it every day, but it is great to surprise your guests and even yourself once in a while :-)
This was a lovely, light, and fragrant tea. I had never tried Moonlight Beauty before. I would certainly buy it again, and the only reason I am giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is because it's such a light tea that, for my own personal preferences, I would not turn to as often as I would a more robust tea. It really is a delicious light tea, though.
Very Good Taste, and aromatic feelnigs, very good tea reccomend
Delicious. I only had a small sample, but I will be ordering a large quantity next time.
Moonlight beauty raw pu’erh (harvested April 3, 2016) is very similar in taste to the moonlight dragon ball white tea. The leaves are covered with white fuzz and looks like silver needle. The “raw” flavor is not too intense, making it a good tea to people who are just starting to drink raw pu’erh.
This is one of my favorite teas! It is quite unique about the way it looks and tastes! - It only consists of tea buds, no open leaves at all; with this beautiful white moonlight fuzz.. - Very gentle and light sweet pleasant and surprisingly complex aroma and taste; with long-lasting sweet aftertaste! - When brewed, it looks almost clear, just slightly yellowish. very clean, no debris at all. Give it a try, if you have not yet! :-)
Very interesting and complex tea. Tastes much like a mixture of Black Tea and White Tea. You get the menthol of Dian Hong, the nuttiness of Bai Mu Dan and a citrus/floral freshness. Later infusions reveal mineral notes that you would suspect in a raw PuErh. Recommended!
At first I wasn't sure if I liked this tea, but I'm really glad that I stuck with it. After a couple of steeps following the gongfu brewing recommendations it really opened up and I felt impressed by the sweetness and complexity.
Reply: Meng Gu (勐谷) tea garden began plant large area of this tea trees from 1992, which means the tea trees around 15 years old.
