American Tea Room Organic Ancient Moonlight White Tea

Moonlight whites are probably my favorite kind of white tea. They are strong yet subtle and pack quite a bit of flavor. This one was no exception. It was fruity, floral and woodsy all at the same time with notes of melon and honeysuckle. There was just a bit of astringency and a sweet finish to each sip. It also made a very refreshing iced tea. I would definitely recommend this tea.
