Incredible Darjeeling fall flush tea from one of the highest gardens in all of Darjeeling, the Gopaldhara Estate. Leaves from the cultivars AV2, P312 and B157 were picked in the highest part of the garden that is subject to freezing temperatures causing the leaves to wilt and begin oxidating before they are picked. This tea has been given the special name “Red Thunder Gold”. You’ll find the leaves very big and beautiful with lots of golden tips but also very fruity, floral and sweet with a long aftertaste.
