2012 Darjeeling First Flush Gopaldhara Wonder Tea
It is “wonderful” – that is how one would describe this amazing tea and that is how the name “Wonder” came about. It is one of those teas that makes you write a poem, makes you relax and enjoy in a tranquil state. This tea shows ample evidence of artisanship, from the beautifully-made dry leaf, to the graceful shape of the delicate infusion, to the flowery finish becoming more intense the cooler the liquor becomes, to the attractive yellow-green liquor. This very fine batch from the Gopaldhara consists AV2 leaves (plucked from bushes that are located at an elevation of around 6000 feet). This is a stand-out, stand-alone tea for special occasions.
