2012 Darjeeling First Flush Goomtee Oolong Tea
This fine Goomtee first flush, technically classified by the garden as an oolong (due to light oxidation), displays the wonderful characteristics of the season! Cupping starts off with a very attractive infusion of small leaf-bud sets of greenish brown with copper highlights. The aroma hints of character. The cup has a clean green, fresh taste, nice mouth feel, then rolls over for a complex flowery finish. Even as it cools, the cup gives off an attractive lilac essence.
