    Wow, a dynamic session indeed! I really enjoy seeing several steeps of an aged tea. Last year on puercn I read that aged white tea is expected to be the next “big thing” in the collector market.

      Hi Cwyn,

      Thanks for the comment. I’ve heard similar stuff. I guess we’ll eventually find out how it does.

      Cheers!

    Thanks guys
    Really interesting. I have seen a number of vendors offer something they call ‘white moon’ pu erh….which as far as I can tell is very much like ‘normal’ pu erh except that only buds are used and it would appear that the buds are withered (in darkness, rather than dried in the sun) and not pan fried to ‘kill green’. I am really guessing about all of this. Do you or any of the blog readers have any insight to offer about this style of tea? I tried white moon once and really enjoyed it. It reminded me of a hong cha surprisingly.

      Hi John,

      Thanks for the comment. I don’t have too much insight on it. I have heard that these white pu’erhs will do pretty well for ~10 years and then fall of. Their track record certainly isn’t as long and dense as pu’erh or even some oolongs. Take all of this with a serious grain of salt as I haven’t done much research and could be off-point!

      Cheers,
      -James
