Yue Guang Bai Pu-erh tea

Yue Guang Bai (月光白) translates into ‘moonlight white’ in English. It is a special Pu-erh tea that is harvested and processed mostly during the night under the moon light or early morning hours - the entire plucking and process avoids any direct sun light. The result is a tea that has:

  1. a curl bud leaf – looks like a white moon
  2. two open leave, top white and back black – as if the moonlight is shinning on the leaves.
  3. it has unique refreshing and gentle sweet aroma and taste 

Recommendation for raw or ripened Pu-erh

All pu-erh teas have a woody/earthy aroma. The more they are aged, the more they develop a deep, mature aged fragrance and smooth texture, highly associated with the original source and quality of the tea leaves. It is very similar to premium wines in this regard.

For Pu-erh tea beginners however, a couple of recommendations will assist you to get started:

  1. if you prefer teas that are not or lightly fermented, such as green or white tea, raw Pu-erh is more likely to be your taste
  2. if you are more a black tea (fully fermented) or Oolong tea (semi-fermented) drinker, a ripened pu-erh is recommended.

Production year: 



Due to it unique nature, Pu-erh teas' preparation is different from other categories of Chinese teas. For more information, please visit: Pu-erh tea preparation and storage guide.

I am very pleased with this raw loose leaf Pu-Erh. Although it is young it is already a fine flavour which shows it\'s superb quality. Once again thanks Valley Green for yet another fine selection from China.

We ship from our warehouse in Sydney Australia, using Australia Post and advise a quote with each purchase. This is calculated directly from Australia Post's calculator during the final stage of the purchase-checkout and based on the total weight of the ordered package.

  • A typical order of 1 or 3 items (not including tea sets) would cost between $9.30 to $19 dollars within Australia.
  • Free standard shipping for orders of $100 AUD and over within Australia.*
  • Express shipping is available at the buyer's expense
  • To calculate the actual postage of your order, please place your order items in the cart and enter your postcode. The postage will then be calculated and displayed. 

We offer better value to a greater number of customers by charging true shipping costs, rather than subsidize postage with higher overall product prices.

Delivery tracking: 

Parcel tracking is a standard practice now with all our deliveries. We provide tracking numbers on request only for the following reasons:

  1. Auspost requires all shipping addresses to be entered manually onto their site/app for the tracking numbers to be linked to each postal parcel automatically. This is not practical for us currently given the numbers of the parcels we process every day. 
  2. We have also had feedbacks that certain customers do not wish to have their mail boxes filled with tracking numbers. 

Our current policy is therefore we provide tracking numbers only when they are requested. Please drop us an email if you wish to have the tracking number to track your delivery. 

Damage of the fragile items for Australia local customers:

We are here to support you on all related aspects of this regard. It is however Auspost's policy for all compensation claims to be lodged by the recipients and the damaged items are required as the evidence for the claims.

  • Although we use Auspost postage calculator to calculate the postage on the website, we cap the international shipping cost at $30 AUD for parcels that include teas only (please contact us for a postage quote if you would like to order tea accessories from us). We will charge $30 AUD as the top postage if paid by credit card, or refund the exceeding amount if paid by Paypal.
