Gopaldhara Darjeeling Classic Second Flush 2023 – Classic Series
$5.29 / 100 grams paper box
This Classic Second Flush is made from the finest mixed clones from the highest elevated sections of Gopaldhara Tea Estate.
The garden workers carefully pluck the leaves by hand, ensuring only the best shoots with prominent buds are picked. The plucking is of such fine quality that the tea can only be hand-sorted, and the machines used to make the tea are very few in number. In addition, this tea is sufficiently oxidized to ensure that all the exquisite flavors are prominently present.
The tea has a woody character with a rare muscatel flavor and a special tinge of sweetness, making this second flush so distinctive. It has brownish leaves with random tips that brew into dark orange liquor. The cup is medium-bodied with musky notes and a fresh aroma to fall in love with. The tea is very smooth with no harsh tones.
