Darjeeling Moonshine is a beautifully floral white tea with a lemon-yellow liquor, citrus undertones and that distinctive muscatel flavour Darjeeling teas are famous for. This delicate tea comprises only newly sprouted leaves harvested in spring from prized tea bushes in the foothills of the Himalayas.

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.

This batch was harvested in April 2021, and will still retain its fresh floral flavour for at least another year.

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.
