Darjeeling Autumn Gopaldhara

Lot DJ-514
Product code: CSTN-48

Perched high in the Mirik Valley of the Darjeeling region, Gopaldhara tea garden grows 3 clonal cultivars (B157, AV2 and T78) to produce this high grade of black tea, affectionately named "Red Thunder" by its producer.

The long leaves and buds give a smooth, full bodied liquor, and boasts an exceptional aromatic finesse ranging from notes of bark, flowers and fruit (raisins) to hints of spices and nuts.

The finish has a pleasant sweetness (malt) characteristic of Autumn Flushes.
