Goomtee Special Summer Chinary Black Tea

description

This tea from the Goomtee tea estate immediately brought to mind a light Zinfandel wine. It's crisp, light-bodied and has a lovely, soft note of black currants that becomes evident in the finish. This is a tea perfect for a cool summers' day.

Nice Tea

Likes : High Quality.

This tea has a great flavor that is very floral in nature. You can tell the leaves were cared for meticulously. The tea it produces is very high quality with a complex array of flavors. I thoroughly enjoy drinking this tea first thing in the morning so I can get a burst of energy for the day.

rich and strong

Likes : Great Aroma, Smooth Body.

Best Served : Anytime.

This is the best Goomtee I have tasted. Its rich, full and heavier than other DJs. Aroma is flowery nad full of grapes with a hint of a cherry, liqour is dense and astringent. Some might find it too strong, but I like it as this is quite unique.

Excellent well characterised Darjeeling

Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma, Smooth Body, High Quality.

Best Served : Anytime.

Rather more spring-like than autumn-like this is a delectable Darjeeling with good muscatel finish. Very good indeed.

More mellow than the Muscatel

Dislikes : Strong.

I compared this tea with the Goomtee Muscatel in a taste test. This tea is much more mellow than the Muscatel, although it has the same basic flavor profile, which was quite muscatel and astringent.
