A Gopaldhara Estate Darjeeling April '06 / 1st Flush. The most beautiful Darjeeling I have encountered.... Bouquet of Clover, jasmine, rose nectar, Champaign/ Muscatel like aroma, sweet and fragrant, smooth and with complexity. Sublime! No bites or bitterness compared to even a high grade Darjeeling. A Candy of High mountain India tea.
Experimenting on older bushes. This is still a developing specimen with Chinese tea making influence. Initial smell and taste like a Competition grade "Oriental Beauty". Pure Heaven. Infused 5 times!
