Review of Tea: Darjeeling Castleton Moonlight Dj-91 2nd Flush 2013

Castleton Darjeeling Tea Estate :

Originally planted in 1885 by Dr. Charles Graham, the slopes of Castleton span the areas of Kurseong, Pankhabari and the Hill Card Roads. The name Castleton has been derived from a building that looks like a castle and which still exists in Kurseong. This Castle (‘Bank Ghar’) belonged to a money lender who made the grandiose fort. The original name of this garden was Kumseri.

The various sections of these gardens have not been given numbers but names such as Bhalu Khop (bear cave), Jim Basha (the erstwhile manager's domain), Dhobitar (washerman’s clothes line) and Baseri (resting place). Castleton’s teas are created from select and pure China bushes that are exquisite and delicate. The teas have a rose like fragrance, golden like sun-spun amber and are most prized for their unique ‘muscatel’ which is comparable to sweet summer wines with intense fragrant top notes of musk.
