Polycrystal is a 'yueguangbai' or 'Moonlight White' tea from Yunnan. A high proportion of buds gives a pointy-ended fragrance and mouthfeel, as well as a little bit of extra stimulant potency (the youngest leaves of the tea plant contain the most caffeine). Dried in the dark over a couple of days, leading to a subtle amount of oxidisation, as seen in the characteristic black leaves, and accompanying amber coloured liquor full of sweetness and punchy fragrance.

A high-end white tea that showcases the best qualities of Yunnan's unique environment. 

Please note that there is a small error on the back of the label; where the Chinese regulatory information is listed, the name was printed incorrectly as 'Dark Red' rather than 'Polycrystal'.
