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 exceptional batch, organic no less, comes from one of the flagship gardens of the region. Its long fragile leaves produce its golden liquor with a supple and oily texture supported by the body of its generous tannins. You'll find subtle notes of flowers and berries complementing the more classical aromas of amber, bark and sweet spices. Just lovely from start to finish.
