A really fine year. (2016)

Likes : Freshness, Unique Flavor Profile.

Best Served : Morning.

I have drunk Goomtee teas from prior years. Like wines, teas vary with the climate each year. 2016 appears to be a very good year. You can see the freshness by the light texture of the tea. The leaves are not compressed and broken. The brew yields a very pleasant taste with lots of subtle flavors to savor. I highly recommend this season.

I have been drinking Goomtee First Flush, black, no sugar, for breakfast every day for 20 years and love it more than ever. I've tried many other teas but always come back to this classic tea.
