Seeyok Moonbeam Summer Muscatel Black Tea
A Teabox exclusive cup plucked at night by the moonlight to capture the best of the elusive muscatel flavor.
Especially made for Teabox by Darjeeling’s revered Seeyok tea estate, this tea is huge on the aroma and flavors of Muscat grapes. The strong liquor and the rare muscatel flavor is layered with fresh notes of plum and subtle hints of caramel. The extraordinary character of the tea can be attributed to the unique plucking event that was carried out on a Strawberry full moon night of June. A special section of the plantation with 120 year old chinary bushes was identified by our tea experts to create this spectacular tea. This rare event has heightened the flavor and aromas of this extraordinary tea and can be experienced wholly with every cup.
