    KNOW YOUR TEA

    One of the oldest tea estates in Darjeeling, standing tall since 1899, the Goomtee tea estate is situated in the south of Kurseong. Grown at 4200 feet under the mist of hills, we have traveled to this estate and sampled this exquisite Muscatel. This Indian single estate tea is medium-bodied, pleasant, and fruity. From the start, notes of apricots and black grapes can be felt along with hints of musk. Notes of oak-wood shore up around the edges and stays on the palate till the end. The aftertaste is tart-fruity, an exceptional cup of Indian Summer Flush 2022!

    taste

    A medium-bodied, summer Darjeeling cup which reverberates with luscious fruity attributes. Delectable notes of black grapes interlaced with mellow tones of apricots envelop the palate right at the start and hums along throughout the length, rendering a distinct texture to the liquor. Furtive musky accents shore up around the edges which gradually ebb to reveal a soft oaky-tonality towards the finish. Subtle tart-fruity flavors akin to red berries linger on in the aftertaste, making for a distinguished experience.
