    KNOW YOUR TEA

    Castleton’s Moonlights always feature at the top of First Flush delights. And so it is this spring too with this superlative cup. Its vibrant aromas welcome and lift you up with floral-fruity notes. The liquor is strikingly smooth and brisk with outstanding notes like those of geraniums and Asiatic lilies. It acquires a depth with luscious fruity tones of muskmelon intermingling with the sweetness of greens, rounding up the cup exquisitely. The fresh aftertaste of white peonies lined with slight nuttiness exalts the experience. Steep it once more for a sweeter cup as flavorful.

    taste

    An immensely smooth, brisk cup with an inherent brightness which commands your attention right from the start. Pronounced floral notes, redolent of geranium and Asiatic lilies envelop the palate and hum alomg throughout the length of the cup. Delectable fruity undertones akin to muskmelon interlaced with furtive sweet green tones come through around the edges and towards the back, rendering a layer of depth and rounding up the cup beautifully. Taking the experience a notch higher is the lingering aftertaste of fresh, white peonies coupled with a subtle nutty sensation. The second steep is sweeter and just as flavorful.
