by Niraj Lama May 16, 2010 0 Comments

You can always depend on Goomtee tea garden to produce good quality Darjeeling. It is the quiet workhorse of the industry. If you are looking for a classic Darjeeling first flush, sans any stunts, Spring Exotica is for you.

DRY TEA: The leaves are a mix of green, gray-black and brown, with abundant silver tips and a neat satisfying appearance. The leaves also possess a good luster reflecting on the high quality of plucking. It's fragrant with smells of flowers and sweet grass that evoke lush spring foliage.

INFUSION: The leaves turn green with brown streaks. A refreshing sweetness with floral notes and an astringent tinge suffuses the nose.

CUP: The liquor is a lovely golden with a fragrance that is mellow with floral notes. The taste is crisp with finely balanced first flush astringent note.

BREWING INSTRUCTIONS: Do not steep for more than 3 mins.






OCCASION: A good wake-me-up-cheery morning cuppa.
