Gopaldhara Red Thunder Gold is a truly special and unique tea from Darjeeling which posses a brilliant sweet taste with floral tones much like those found in a red wine.
The tea's unique taste is as a result of the leaves being subject to freezing temperatures due to its high elevation growth combined with late season picking, the frost causes leaves to wilt and fermentation begins at a slow rate while the leaves are still attached to the plant.
This unique tea is produced in very limited quantities each year and we are proud to offer the even rarer Red Thunder 'Gold' which possesses a higher golden tip content which imbues a sweeter and smoother taste.
The tea has been sourced direct from Gopaldhara tea estate in Darjeeling, located in Mirik Valley and one of the highest tea estates in Darjeeling at an elevation of 1,700m to 2,100m with gardens totalling 320 hectares.
