Perched high in the Mirik Valley of the Darjeeling region, Gopaldhara tea garden grows a AV2 cultivar to produce this lot, affectionately named "Red Thunder" by its producer.
Darjeeling 1st Flush GoomteeLot DJ-3
Produced before the lockdown in India, this early lot from Goomtee’s old seed plants was transformed in the classical style typical of this garden. Dating back to the late 19th century, the Goomtee Tea Estate has more than enough experience to produce a great tasting cup.
This lot, with its lively liquor, shows great texture in the mouth. Its slightly saline taste is neatly embellished by aromas of wood and spices (ginger), and trailing at the end, the Darjeeling trademark muscatel finish. A full and warming tea, easy to appreciate.
An infusion between 90 and 95 degrees is recommended to best capture the wonderful greenness of freshly plucked First Flush Darjeeling.
