Moonshine is a white/green tea, depending on classification. These unusual hybrid teas are common in Nepal, where tea makers, without much influence from other regions, have developed their own teas through trial and error. The plucking standard and leaf is more similar to a white tea, with the soft, downy leaves. The processing is more like a green tea, with minimal oxidation on the leaf.
Moonshine has a soft, sweet-savory profile, somewhat similar to Chinese Bi Luo Chun. The liquor has a cream-of-corn character, with its smooth, slightly brothy texture and the mix of sweet, savory, and salty notes. The finish is clean, with a slight dryness.
