If our Jungpana Vintage is a wispy, ephemeral experience then Goomtee China Spring is the tea to ground you with its notes of spring greens and humid forest. A light floral aspect and astringency balance this moderately priced Darjeeling quite perfectly.
Goomtee is known for producing crisp, complex flavour profiles with floral and vegetal characteristics. Owing to its proximity to the Mahanadi Darjeeling Railway Station, Goomtee Tea Gardens have become a much visited tea destination. Gardens, planted mainly with China variety bushes, range from 1000m to 1800m among hills that receive ample rainfall, cool temperatures and alternating sunshine and mist. Ideal conditions for growing the best teas.
