Gopaldhara (RTD – 119) Darjeeling Classic Second Flush 2023 – Classic Series
₹ 415.00 / 100 grams paper box
Classic Second Flush is made from the finest mixed clones from the highest elevated section of Gopaldhara Tea Estate. The tea has a woody character with rare muscatel flavour and a special tinge of sweetness, which makes the second flush so distinctive. It has brownish leaves with random tips that brew into dark orange liquor. The cup is medium-bodied with musky notes and a fresh aroma to fall in love with. The tea is very smooth with no harsh tones.
The plucking is of such fine quality that the tea only needs to be hand sorted and the machines used to make the tea are very less. The garden workers are very careful in their plucking by hand to make sure only the best shoots with prominent buds are plucked. This tea is also made in the same way but it is sufficiently oxidized to ensure that all the exquisite flavors are prominently present.

The tea is definitely good. Flavour and taste is signature Darjeeling 2nd flush. However, had previously tasted superior tea from Gopaldhara. Would like to give 4.5 max for this.
