    KNOW YOUR TEA

    Before temperatures begin to drop in Darjeeling, the autumn flush arrives. A small-batch picking, this tea brings out delicate flavors. One such delicacy is this autumn tea from Goomtee. As you sip this fragrant black tea, notes of citrus fruits and drupes arrive on the palate. Subtle hints of stone fruits come in the middle adding strength to the cup. The aftertaste is sweet pulpy.
