    description

    Located at just one and a half hours away from our facility, the 122-year-old Goomtee tea estate, from majestic Kurseong, Darjeeling, is famed for producing exceptionally aromatic first flush teas. This year's Goomtee Special Spring Black, produced in limited quantity, is a heavenly sensorial experience. As you begin sipping, vibrant green aromas coat your palate. Towards the middle, notes of unripe tree fruits and peaches arrive, adding depth and character to the cup. The aftertaste is of blooming white orchids, an unforgettable cup of first flush 2021.
