    KNOW YOUR TEA

    From the 122-year-old Goomtee tea estate, situated in the majestic Kurseong valley, comes a delectable Autumn harvest. The lively, medium-bodied cup opens with mellow stone-fruity notes akin to apricot. It gradually subsides to reveal mesial warm, nutty accents with subtle undertones of dried drupes. Vegetal accents furtively tease the palate from around the edges adding a distinct texture to the cup. Delicate cedar-like afternotes linger, making for a distinguished autumnal experience.
