This is a delightful Darjeeling Autumn Tea from the highest elevated sections of Gopaldhara Tea Estate. The tea is produced from old china bushes in early November when the temperature is low but has not reached very low levels. The temperature experienced during this month imparts a very distinct character to the tea, making it unique.
The tea leaves are brownish-black with few tips. It brews into a bright orange cup having excellent muscatel notes. The tea has a sweet flavor with the taste of dense ripe fruits without any astringency. The aftertaste is well-defined, long-lasting, and captivating.
