Rohini (RTE-05) Hand Rolled Spring Beauty – First Flush 2023 – Master Series
₹ 765.00 / 25 gms paper box
This limited edition early First Flush tea results from a year of research and hard work and is a completely new style of Darjeeling. This rare first flush 2023 has a very fruity fragrance and aroma without any body. Yes, it is very light on the palate. It should not be mistaken as white tea as it has been oxidized but all by hand without any machinery works involved. It is a hand-rolled and shuffled tea and it has been oxidized several times in the night very gently. The AV2 buds have a tinge of golden hue to them. It is a very limited production and we estimate production at around 70 kg which will be going throughout the globe. It is the rarest of rarest teas from Darjeeling.
The leaves are finely plucked whole leaves. It has a taste of a refreshing lively cup with a refined fruity flavor topped off with the finish of natural honey and peaches and wildflowers. This early first flush tea is very smooth to drink without astringency and can be brewed multiple times. So 2.5 grams of Tea brewed for a single cup should at least give you 5 cups. Adjust the brewing time of each cup depending on your experience.

Okay, this is the first product that I purchased from Gopaldhara and I must admit that the tea tastes awesome. It’s the best that they offer and I’m not sure whether I’d ever be able to switch to other tea brand or even other teas that Gopaldhara offers. And they offer myriad Tea variety. Yes, they are quite expensive but really more than worth the price.
Just a pinch of tea leaf in the standard tea cup (not coffee mug/cup) is enough. Pour hot water and don’t leave it for more than exact 5 minutes. The taste brings soothing and calm feeling. Would highly recommend this product should one want a feedback.
