From Teabox

After a long season of trying the first flush teas with sweet and light cups, we have finally started receiving excellent second flush teas and this is one of our first purchases of the 2013 second flush season. The leaves of this tea were grown at an height of 1600 meters from Section 3A. It is another Goomtee masterpiece combining elements rarely found in a single tea: fresh pine scent as though on a mist, lavender and mint in a sweet melange . This is a profound, full, rich tea boasting of a vivid floral bouquet, tending toward the flowers of the British countryside and of dry sherry.

Gomtee Tea Estate is a beautiful garden located between Jungpana to the East and Castleton to the West with a glorious past consisting of multiple owners. Henry Lennox, a British pioneer, was the first to start planting teas in this garden back in 1899. Darjeeling Tea from Goomtee, is processed in the traditional “Orthodox” way – breed and harvested at an altitude of over 4500 ft combined with excellent harvesting methods, this has ensured quality of pure china tea leaf. These distinguished teas are often sold marketed as Muscatel Valley teas.

Dry leaves: honey and strawberries. Washed leaves are very worty, malty and floral.
I used a gaiwan to steep.
Again this grainy wort aroma on the infusion, along with rose, peaches, strawberries and slight plastecene.

It’s rich on the palate with the aromas following through. medium- fine-grained astringency.

Robust and tasty
