Unique muscatel sharpness reverberates to gradually subside with a cloying oncoming of honeysuckle only to reecho the fruity notes of plum for a complete circle of flavours.
Elegant and wiry swirls in a shade of loamy brown with many leaves holding slender pubescent golden tips hypnotize with a delicious smell of warm walnut wood and plums.
Whole leaves and stems in an even shade of rustic brown spread open to release a rich earthy sweetness of walnut brownies sealed off by fresh and sweet herbs.
A bright tangerine liquor elusive with the fresh sweetness of morning grass rounds up on the palette with heart notes of pulpy nectarines and a gentle floral notion of honeysuckle for a supremely succulent climax of plums.
For a perfect Cup of Tea:
Take 1 cup of water (200 ml).
Heat it to 90-95°C.
Put 1 teaspoon (2.5g) of tea leaves in the water.
Steep the leaves for 3-5 minutes.
About The Garden
Goomtee Tea Garden
A roundabout of breath-taking beauty and charm, Goomtee in Nepali translates to a turn in the road. In the Valley of Southern Kurseong at an elevation of 4800 feet above sea level, the Goomtee tea garden was started in the 1860s by a British planter called Henry Montgomery Lennox. With a 130 hectare area growing pure china bushes and some Assam hybrids, the picturesque locale is adorned by flower gardens and groves of bamboo and Pine trees. A North-facing garden with a South-eastern balance area, Goomtee is a specialist in the world renowned Darjeeling Muscatel Tea and is a much awaited celebration amongst connoisseurs. Today, with its welcoming ambience reminiscient of a Victorian Era Novel, the garden hosts tourists from round the world in the old heritage Barabunglow.
