Castleton Moonlight Spring White Tea
A first flush specialty; smooth, brisk with an abundance of floral-fruity flavors and textures.
This exclusive cup from one of Darjeeling’s prime estates is a true first flush gem. Multi layered and complex, this moonlight white comes with a smooth and brisk body. It is aromatic to a degree you may find quite fascinating. Various tastes and textures play intriguingly on the palate and lend the cup a lively feel. Gentle floral notes of geraniums and asiatic lilies come alive and fuse delightfully with the sweet of muskmelons and fresh greens. The aftertaste is a delicate mix of fuchsia peonies and fresh walnuts. Steep it a second time for a sweeter cup.
