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.
The GOOMTEE MUSCATEL SECOND FLUSH is evocative, to say the least, but that's why you're drawn to it in the first place.
