India - Darjeeling Gopaldhara Red Thunder AF 2019
Gopaldhara Red Thunder Oolong 2019 is a limited edition finest Autumn Flush Darjeeling Tea made from the frosted leaves. This finest autumn flush tea is made from the clonal bushes and appears to be blackish red with abundant tips. The tea is made during the last week of October where the temperature starts approaching zero degrees in the night which leads to the leaves getting frosted at night. Extreme cold weather conditions at high elevation induce a special & complex flavor into the sea. The tea is well oxidized but you will still get the prominent fruity flavor.
The tea brews into a fully transparent orange liquor cup with excellent muscatel flavor & rich dense notes of ripe fruits. The flavor profile includes plenty of fruits, in-warm, soft, earthy & mineral context which is very approachable and well-balanced. The tea is sweet without any astringency. The aftertaste is well – defined, long-lasting & captivating.
