From Teabox

We are excited to offer Moonshine again this year from Glenburn plantation. Moonshine is one of their best produce -
specially reserved clonal teas that are carefully plucked and processed for selected buyers. Drawing from the morning dew that rises off the River Rungeet in the month of March, this light Oolong tea is made from only the most tender shoots plucked from fields in Glenburn that grow their prized clonal bushes. And this moonshine has all what an excellent first flush tea would have – flowery and flavourful, dry leaves are quite a delight to savour and the liquor tastes exceedlingly good.

Pleasant though not outstanding. Light, slightly sweet, a touch of malt and hay. I’m reminded a lot of a Kenyan white tea.

A somewhat odd-tasting tea: similar to a FF Darjeeling (albeit in a muted form), but there is also a note of something akin to wheat, or a similar grain. Way too expensive for something that tastes rather flat, and is nothing much in particular.

First infusion – 3 g. per 8 oz water, 75 deg., 2:00 min.

Second infusion – 3 g. per 8 oz. water, 75 deg., 4:00 min.

Third infusion – 3 g. per 8 oz. water, 75 deg., 10:00+ min.

Well, I am not a fan of Darjeeling oolongs. If you did opt for this sampler, the cost is low so the downside is limited.

Best wishes,
