Goomtee Classic Muscatel Darjeeling First Flush Black Tea

Goomtee Classic Muscatel Darjeeling First Flush Black Tea

Shining bright with a golden liquoring cup, this Goomtee spring black tea brings in exquisite notes of muscatel in every sip. This tea is manufactured in the Muscatel Valley Division of the Goomtee plantations, which even though is not certified organic, has been using only organic methods of production for the last several years and is even processed separately in the factory. Muscatel is very selectively found in first flush Darjeeling teas, however Goomtee is known to product some excellent muscatels every spring. The leaves are typically black-brown with a combination of light-green shades. The flavor is rich and full-bodied with extremely mellow sensations of astringency after a few rolls on your palate. The lingering aftertaste of the tea is delightful.
