Thurbo Moonlight Spring White Tea

description

From one of Darjeeling’s largest gardens, known for its AV2 clonal bushes, comes this white tea. With a pronounced AV2 character, it makes a cup that’s balanced in texture, in mouth feel, in its intensity of flavors, and even in the aftertaste.

delicious and unique

While I don't catch any hint of cherry blossom, this tea is definitely floral with bold notes of sweet lime. Very smooth from start to finish, with a hint of sweetness. Very nice any time of day, but I think it would be especially delicious as a dessert tea, maybe paired with cheesecake or creme brûlée

I wasn't sure if I would like this, as I'm not normally a white tea lover. One Sio changed my mind. This tea was absolutely delicious. Easily my favorite of the sample pack I received. It was full bodied yet light and I enjoyed it hot. However, I let the tea cool and took a sip. Oh my. I am so looking forward to trying this as an iced tea!

Excellent Tea.

Likes : Freshness.

Best Served : Anytime.

This is one of the most refreshing teas I have ever had the pleasure of trying. It is nice and fruity and it is so fresh it seems like it was just picked yesterday. I like brewing a really strong cup and watching the liquor turn golden in color. It is a superior tea by any measure and was immediately one of my favorite teas from the sampler that I purchase. I also liked how the tea smells almost like magnolia flowers. A real treat I am sure even the most avid tea oppoonent would enjoy.

Just as described

I have just finished a 50g package of this tea and in my view, it is very accurately described in the Tea Characteristics as provided above. The leaves were fresh and dust free and smelt like fresh cut grass/hay. I always enjoy smelling the leaves prior to making the tea as it provides a hint of what is to come. Enjoyed and highly recommended.
