In fact, the taste of Giddapahar SFTGFOP 1 CH Musk Autumn Flush 2016 has something of the fragrance of autumn leaves, precious woods, and rich, dark earth. These notes are carried by a mild sweetness that melts all involved tastes to highly pleasant harmony.

“Autumnals”

The autumn flushes, also called “autumnals”, today ever more often are referred to as the “lost treasure of Darjeeling”. But, actually, why “lost”?  Well, if it comes to tea from Darjeeling (or Assam, for that matter), it’s usually all about first and second Flushes, i.e. the teas from the first and second spring harvest seasons. Later summer pickings, on the other hand – and even more the autumn flushes – used to wear a perceived labeling of low quality. Especially those “autumnals”, however, do not deserve this reputation in any way. Who doesn’t know this, hasn’t tried! And our Giddapahar SFTGFOP 1 CH Musk Autumn Flush 2016 has all it takes to convince any friend of black teas of the contrary.

It might not sound all too promising, when it’s said that the plants are exhausted, “tired” in autumn. But exactly this is wherein the autumnals’ unique potential and appeal lies. A veil of sweet mildness enwraps the teas of the autumn pickings like a pastel-amber-colored robe. New facettes come to surface, so far in the year overlayered by the sharper spices of spring and summer. The most astonishing and particularly individual thing with our Goomtee Classic Autumn Flush 2016, though, is the bridge it builds back to the first spring picking. So, despite the progressed season, this autumn flush still has much of the first flush’s floweryness – and just as much of the second flush’s spicyness. Andit unites these two elements with the characteristics of the autumn flush in a  unique way. The result is a completely new, surprisingly multifacetted harmony of tastes that is unparalleled among this year’s autumnals.
