  • Goomtee Muscatel First Flush 2017 from Goomtee Tea Estate, Darjeeling, India

    Goomtee Muscatel First Flush 2017

    8,4026,90

    In this year, Goomtee Muscatel First Flush is the powerful among the Darjeeling’s early picking. High flower notes combine with pronounced roast flavors to the season’s No. 1 wake-up tea. At this, the power of flavor and effect reflects in the pronounced, long-lasting aftertaste on the palate. What might appear as a slight astringency to the unexperienced tea drinker at first, in this aftertaste transforms to pure pleasant sweetness. This way, the Goomtee Muscatel First Flush becomes a welcome companion even hours beyond the actual intake.

  • Goomtee Spring Oolong First Flush 2018

    Goomtee Spring Oolong First Flush 2018

    6,4019,80

    With the Spring Oolong First Flush 2018, Goomtee Tea Estate makes another step in the development of modern first flush processing in Darjeeling.  Here, the line between black tea and Oolong tea processing has been blurred for a while already, in a way that makes it even hard to clearly assign the result to any of the two categories. Now, thanks to rich downpours and temporarily snow-covered tea gardens during the preceding winter, 2018 is a truly exceptional year for Darjeeling teas. And whoever is lucky enough to getting to try this tea in this special season, will certainly agree with me that the development of first flush processing in Darjeeling is going in a very good direction!
