description

Every year Goomtee’s teas stand out from the hundreds of cups that we sample. And for good reason. This one’s welcoming and aromatic, and with a mellow, medium strength. It preps your palate with subtle tart notes of plums and grapefruits, and then impresses with ripe and rich flavors like those of apricots. A pleasant texture comes forth with a layered and ample mouthfeel. There are some nuanced tones of oakwood mixed with musky hints toward the end. A certain tartness comes on in the aftertaste to give the drinker a truly special, traditional chinary experience.
