Goomtee Special Spring Chinary Black Tea
A rare Darjeeling cup, brisk and medium-bodied, with notes of raw fruits and delicious sweetness of muskmelons.
This First Flush cup from one of Darjeeling’s sought out estates is truly a palate pleaser. Its bright aromas hit you right from the start and as you sip you’ll find the liquor quite brisk and has a medium strength that lets the flavors come around beautifully. Notes of unripe fruits softly greet the palate giving way to more bolder and luscious sweetness like that of muskmelons. It lends a delightful feel to the cup and it gains more with gentle vegetal hints around the edges. The finish is floral with nuances of white orchids and the aftertaste quite crisp with hints of raw papaya.
