From DarjeelingTeaXpress

Goomtee is a very well known Darjeeling heritage garden planted with pure china bushes almost a century ago. This tea is for the strong hearted first flush lovers as it has a strong body with a very slight tinge of muscatel (grape flavour usually associated with second flush Darjeelings). It is a well balanced cup that leaves a stong after taste as well. With repeated steepings, the liquor becomes sweeter and midler. Perfect tea for long winding day with a good book in hand to read.

This tea is very satisfyingly strong and dark. The leaves are thin, with a mixture of black and deep green colors. You also get a nice strong woody aroma once the bag is open.

Steeping is no different, giving an equally strong woody aroma with a slight fresh floral scent, the color a brilliantly deep gold.

The flavor is nicely fresh and green, but very strong in body with a strong after taste. Like it’s aromas, it is a slight woody, as well as a slight muscatel. But strong, satisfyingly and pleasantly strong.

I would imagine with repeated steepings, leaves this strong would be versatile. But, with the initial steep, you are given a very pleasant strong and dark brew perfect for a late afternoon.
