description

As moonlights go, they are the best of the bunch. Profiles vary from batch to batch and the terroir and technique make a fine difference. Margaret’s Hope this spring offers an incredibly luscious cup, much envied by other moonlights and highly desired by tea enthusiasts. The aromatic liquor is vibrant right from the start and is well complemented by a light body that is impressively velvety. The lush geraniums and lilies resound throughout and some cheerful fruity notes of raw mangoes add depth and mellowness to the cup. Subtle hints of moonflower make the aftertaste quite sublime. You can steep this cup a second time for a sweet and floral experience.

aroma:
Immensely fragrant; redolent of geranium, lily, unripe tropical fruit and hint of fresh greens
appearance:
Champagne
taste:
The liquor is light-bodied, velvety smooth and tipped with vibrant floral attributes. The palate is filled with an aromatic suppleness, similar to geranium and lily which gradually grows into prominence and reverberates throughout. Pleasant fruity nuances, like raw mango come through distinctly around the edges and towards the end; rendering a layer of depth, mellowness and vivifying character to the cup. Ephemeral notes of moon flower come through in the aftertaste, making for a sublime experience. The second steep is pleasantly sweet and floral.
