Goomtee estate is the sought-after farm for a true Darjeeling tea, which is harvested from descendants of Chinese tea trees planted in Darjeerling in the late 19th century. Curiously, the inception of the Darjeerlng tea industry was brought about by an Englishman who disguised himself as a Chinese and successfully stole Chinese tea seedlings and smuggled Chinese tea workers across the ocean.
The 2nd flush is the second harvest of the year and it produces a muscatel note, like Moscato, that is clearer than the first flush. You can imagine its more intense flavour from the crimson colour of the brew.
In the 2017 Tea Master's Cup International Championship, Goomtee teas were used by both the first and second prize winners in the tea brewing category.
Sweet aromatic elegance interplays with the strong character of the taste. It compliments a hard cheese like cheddar, and suppresses any pungency of blue cheese.
