Gopaldhara Garden in Darjeeling, run by the Saria family, is perched at the highest elevations of Darjeeling. High elevation often results in more complex flavour. In addition, the garden’s highest sections have been progressively replanted with young, fresh plants.

This batch was made from one of the highest sections in the whole of Darjeeling, planted with excellent AV2 varietals.┬áThe garden calls this high elevation and hard-withered style the ‘Wonder Gold’. They make a few batches in this style; this was our favourite.

 

Hard-withering means the leaf has a lot of moisture removed in the early stages, resulting in a greener looking black tea.

A melody of delicate tropical fruit notes and flowers in harmony on the palate, followed by a quick sharpness in the finish that lets you know it’s a fresh 1st flush.
