If you think the best teas produced in Darjeeling tea region are from early spring flush, you should taste this one! It’s definitely my favorite Darjeeling tea. It comes from the highest elevation garden Gopaldhara and it was produced in November. Malty with note of ripe fruits with something we can say red wine-like style. Highly recommended. 

2018 harvest is not only much more pretty than 2017 (full, bigger leaves with high content of fluffy buds) but the taste is richer and more balanced with great exotic fruit notes mixed with flavors reminding us good red wine. Round and balanced texture.

Famous muscatel notes are here too, of course!
