    KNOW YOUR TEA

    One of the oldest tea estates in Darjeeling, standing tall since 1899, the Goomtee tea estate is situated in the south of Kurseong. Grown at 4000 feet under the mist of hills, we have traveled to this estate and sampled this exquisite Muscatel. This Indian single estate tea is medium-bodied, pleasant, and fruity. From the start, notes of nectarines and apricots can be felt along with hints of musk. Notes of grapes come towards the middle that stays on the palate till the end. The aftertaste is tart-fruity, an exceptional cup of Indian Summer Flush 2021!

    taste

    A medium-bodied, pleasantly supple cup which feels ample in the mouth and resonates with vibrant fruity attributes right from the start. Luscious notes of nectarines and apricots can be perceived immediately which gradually subside to reveal a heart resounding with pronounced musky accents; adding a layer of depth and vivacious intensity to the liquor. Delightful grapey texture extends all the way till the finish, interrupted briefly by delicate oaky tones which shore up around the edges. Mild tart-fruity flavors similar to redcurrants can be picked up in the aftertaste, making for a sublime experience.
