Moonlight white tea (Tea Virgin) is a precious white tea that is picked by female beauties under the spring moonlight, the most pristine tea virgin with multi-functions. A bright moon hung in the sky, female tea plunkers pick a bud and a leaf from the tea tea tree with dew on it, and finish plunking before dawn. Covered them with woven bamboo strips board and hang the tea piece by piece without overlapping and then air dry for 4-5 days. It is a type of white tea with medicinal functions. The Tea Plunking Song originally written by My Love Tea “Dr. Tea” with copyright is also a good way to appreciate the beauty of the Moonlight White Tea.
