Darjeeling Moonshine is a beautifully floral and fragrant white tea with a bright lemon-yellow liquor. It carries subtle citrus undertones and exhibits that unmistakable muscatel flavour Darjeeling teas are famous for. This delicate tea comprises only the most tender shoots, grown at a top tea estate in the foothills of the Himalayas and harvested in spring by only their most experienced tea pickers.

An artisanal tea comprising only tender buds and sprouting leaves from prized tea bushes, Darjeeling Moonshine is harvested in early April and made in very small batches. It is processed with extreme care, to preserve the tea’s inherent antioxidants and nutrients.

While the abundance of silvery tips (buds) and minimal processing makes it technically a white tea, it does undergo some withering and rolling—similar to oolong teas—so it seems to defy classification.

Gongfu style (Gaiwan)
4g | per 100ml | 80°C | 1 min
+ 10s per steep for at least 5 steeps

Western style (Teapot)
2g | per 100ml | 80°C | 3 mins
+ 1 min per steep for at least 3 steeps

Cold brew
10g | 1L | Room temp/ refrigerated | 6 hours

Because it is such a fine, delicate tea, we recommend you brew Darjeeling Moonshine at a gentle 80°C.

These are just guidelines. As we always say, it’s best to experiment with a range of temperatures and leaf-to-water ratios to understand the tea and your own taste preferences.
