India Darjeeling Autumn Flush Gopaldhara Premium Red Thunder Black Tea

Z - Archive

A new production tea from Gopaldhara, made in the same style as the Red Thunder Gold but with a higher degree of tips, resulting in a smoother sweeter tea than the Red Thunder Gold, while still possessing the unique fruity floral red wine tones.

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.

Tasting Notes:
- Smooth texture
- Brilliant sweet taste with floral and fruit tones
- Similarities in taste to a fine red wine
