Yue Guang Bai translates to Moonlight White.  Supposedly the teas name is derived by the production method of being allowed to air dry overnight in the moonlight.  However, as this tea has gained in popularity it is now being dried indoors with warm air. Drying the leaves in this method takes longer than drying in the sun, adding that extra level of oxidation sweetness over traditional white teas.
