Darjeeling 2nd Flush, Goomtee Estate

$35.50
| /

Darjeelings are standouts in the black tea category, renown for their complex aromas and nuanced flavors. The flushes refer to the harvest: second flushes are the second hand-picking of the plants—usually in late April or early May—and the small leaves are fully withered and rolled so as to maximize oxidation.

This lot (DJ-42), from the beautiful Goomtee Estate at the foothills of the Himalayas, boasts a deep second flush profile: the rich hazelnut and brown sugar flavor is crowned by aromas of tropical fruit and sweet grain. A full-flavored and nutty cup, with notable roundness in the finish, it brings to mind baked goods and pumpkin pie.

Received the tea very quickly. This tea is special. It has some unusual and refreshing tones and is still great with milk and sugar.
