The Dragonmoon blend is based on a classic blend, which combines:
a) Assam - a delicious second flush tea with all the maltiness and smooth characteristics that the world has come to expect of the best Assams.
b) Darjeeling - a first flush high grown Darjeeling from the estate Soom with mysterious and magical muscatel character.
c) Dimbula Ceylon - a February production Dimbula from estate Hatton displaying the coppery depth and flavor of an exceptional Ceylon.
Dragonmoon has the strength and regal character of the dragon yet matched with the luminous quality of an early evening full moon. We recommend this tea as a lovely after dinner tea or a midday refresher. You will find the intriguing flavor well suited to your palate.
