Goomtee Special Spring Black Tea

description

A hallmark spring tea, it packs in fresh green flavors that define the best of the season. There's a brightness in every sip that is very attractive. A tea we recommend for those who seek a fresh, bracing start to their day.

taste

The liquor is clean, crisp, quite brisk and well-rounded. Raw notes of cut grass, bark and fresh greens dominate the cup. Soft hints of cucumber peel and unripe fruit are noticeable around the edges along with hints of geranium. These flavors come a full circle before finishing clean.

Really good!

Likes : Great Aroma, Smooth Body, High Quality.

Dislikes : Bitter if Over-Steeped.

Best Served : Anytime, Evening.

I've always been a huge fan of the Darjeeling region - this is no exception. In my experience, tea from Darjeeling does have a tendency to get bitter easily, however, if you pay attention you'll end up with a great cup of tea. The first pot I made barely had any taste, the second pot was perfect.

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.
