Product Description

Castleton Moonlight is probably one of the most popular and exotic tea of Darjeeling. Only about 500 Kg of this variety is produced every year and the demand is almost 10 times more than the production. This batch of tea comes from the Av2 Clone plantations of Dhobi Tar section of the garden which is known for producing the best quality clonal white teas.

The appearance of tea leaves is very delicate and has about 60% silver buds. The aroma is sweet, floral and little baked. When brewed for full 4 minutes it gives pale yellow liquor. The aroma is floral and citric. The sip starts with a faint floral taste but as you keep sipping the floral gets more prominent. The cool mint like flavour can be seen prominently in the aftertaste.

We can say that if you are looking for the best of Darjeeling this is just the perfect tea. A true champagne of teas.
