Description: This Darjeeling Tea is an incredibly rare 2020 First-Flush that is also known as Moondrop. Located in the Mirik Valley in the Darjeeling tea-growing region of India, Gopaldhara Estate has been in operation since 1955. The tea garden has an average elevation of 6000ft, making it one of the highest in the area. This tea is a beautiful blend of frosty tea buds and lightly oxidized leaf - it almost resembles a white tea in appearance.
Tasting Notes: The aroma of fresh-plucked sweet grasses weave delicate floral notes throughout the cup. This bright freshness translates to the palate of the steep as well, which is full-mouthed in its clear, soft texture and flavour. The tea stays shy of a biting astringency, instead building to a pleasant copper linger along the sides of the tongue.
Brewing Instructions: 2g per cup. 90ºC water. steep 3 - 5 minutes.
