Darjeeling 2nd Flush – Gopaldahara
Gopaldhara Tea Estate DJ-100
In 2016, we had the pleasure of visiting Gopaldhara for a couple days…we walked the fields in early morning, and late at night. See more of our story here. We saw processing, plucking, and spent the day with the manager.
Located in the gorgeous Mirik Valley, Gopaldhara features incredibly steep slopes that lead down to its new factory. They’ve been growing tea here for over 100 years, so they are pretty deeply rooted.
We tasted many many second flush teas this year…and many of them were “ok”, but missing something..even the prized early season harvests. So, we took a chance and practiced patience (it’s hard sometimes eh?, especially for fresh tea and tea folk)..and at last, we found the two 2nd flushes we offer today. Our patience has paid off two-fold…not only are these teas superior to earlier season harvests, they are also at a great price. So stock up, and enjoy.
This is the stronger of the two. Bold and full cup, a regular feature for us on these increasingly chilly mornings. Notes of black pepper balanced with sweet chocolate, and that classic 2nd flush malt.
$3.00 – $120.00
