Thurbo Moonlight Darjeeling First Flush White Tea


Thurbo Moonlight Darjeeling First Flush White Tea

One of the most surprising and complex teas of its kind this year comes from a well-loved estate of Darjeeling. A classic, brisk white tea with a strong, woody profile and an interesting flavour and aroma profile. A high density of tips and dry AV2 clonal leaves manifest into a bright brew in the cup and an appealing fragrance, both floral and fruity.  
The tea is a lovely soft, clean and smooth. It has a gentle fresh green appeal at its heart, like a budding gardenia that develops into a mango-candy like note towards the finish. The second steep brings out the sweeter floral notes. 
This is tea is best taken by itself for it is an experience worth savouring.
