While Mike was up in Darjeeling in the April 2016, he tasted this new style Darjeeling First Flush from his old friends at Gopaldhara. He loved the novel approach to First Flush. Even a competitive tea estate owner was very impressed and told his tea maker, he could learn something. This tea has been lightly withered (dried) and lightly rolled, and these combine to create the nice floral notes.
Large dark green twists with large green tea leaves, and the occasional silver tip.
