    KNOW YOUR TEA

    Springtime in this highland estate is filed with fresh blooms of lilies and geraniums. This floral, fragrant character really comes alive in this tea made delicately with fine pubescent leaves and buds. The cup is abound with the sweetness of spring mixed with subtle but significant undertones of white peaches and muskmelons giving it a slightly sharp texture. New aromas sway the palate and end with sensual notes of fuchsia peonies. Steep it a second time for bright fruity tones like those of raw mango and calisson. A truly exotic experience of spring.

    taste

    The liquor is immensely aromatic, smooth and tipped with floral-fruity flavors. Pronounced floral notes, akin to Asiatic lilies and geranium greet the palate and gradually gains strength as you make your way through the cup. Delectable fruity undertones, redolent of white peach and muskmelon emerges around the middle and the back, rendering a rich, vivacious intensity to the liquor. The palate is filed with an aromatic suppleness, evoking exquisite fragrance of fushia peonies towards the end; making for a distinguished experience. The second steep is equally enjoyable and beams with robust, fruity characters akin to raw mango and calisson, making for a delightful cup of Moonlight white tea from this iconic estate.
