India Darjeeling 2nd Flush Gopaldhara 'China Muscatel Gold' Black Tea

Z - Archive

A smooth and fruity Darjeeling with a zesty taste of orange blossom combined with a brilliant muscatel finish, from one of the prestigious early invoices of the second flush.

A very special tea from Darjeeling, produced exclusively from the original 130 year old 'China' bushes, originally used by the British Empire to setup India's tea industry. These bushes have been largely replaced by assamica throughout India with the exception of Darjeeling, where some of these original bushes survive.
