description

Each year Goomtee from Darjeeling makes some of the most surreal highland sips, and we make sure we are the first ones to get them. With this year’s first flush black, the notable estate has given us a brilliant cup redolent of fresh aromas of spring including tender greens, unripe fruits and delicate blossoms. The golden color of the cup is rather captivating and imparts flavors succulent and clean with a bit of briskness. Sweet notes of peaches and nutty macadamias come through the middle adding intrigue to the bright cup. A remarkable finish makes the cup stand out this spring with subtleties of white orchids.

aroma:
Green and vegetal, marked by notes of fresh cut grass, asparagus, unripe fruits and fresh floral hints
appearance:
Light gold
taste:
The liquor is clean, quite brisk and resonates with gourmet scents reminiscent of fresh greens, tree bark and cut grass right from the start. These flavors continue to dominate for the most part till it gradually subsides to reveal subtle intonations of delicious peach and fresh macadamia nuts around the edges; rendering more depth and character to the cup. The finish reflects delicate accents of white orchids which linger on in the aftertaste, making for a unique and majestic cup of first flush Darjeeling.
