Lochan Teas have always been notable for flavorful teas at a reasonable price, but Castleton Moonlight is a strong 2nd flush Darjeeling. The unsteeped leaves have an intoxicating aroma; they’re larger than usual, with a mixture of brown and off-white buds. On taste, there’s a pleasing spiciness, full taste, and even some Muscatel notes on the very finish. The liquor is deep amber, and is equally nice by itself or with a biscuity snack. I would have preferred even more Muscatel clarity in the taste, but the richness is still satisfying. I love the balanced taste of Castleton teas, and this doesn’t disappoint.
