Red Thunder is the highest grade from our favorite Gopaldhara Garden. This year, the garden manager slightly changed the style of processing this tea in favor of a higher leaf attractiveness, which shows a very well-performed oxidation. This year, the tea is full of beautiful tips, the look is really very attractive and not only the look, but also the nobility and intensity of taste and aroma were among the best we tasted this year. The taste is smooth, full, with more pronounced sweetness and typical alpine liveliness, the aroma is floral honey, ripe fruit and traces of spices.
