From Thunderbolt Tea


This is for the first time we are adding a tea from Dooteriah Tea Estate. Dooteriah Tea garden along with Kalej Valley and Peshok are run by the Alchemist Group. Mr. Yogdeep Gurung, the Superintendent of Dooteriah Tea Estate sampled us the teas from ‘DJ-1’ to ‘DJ-8’ which came in various grades, some from china, assam and clonal bushes. We tasted all, we liked them, but this 2014 Darjeeling clonal variety ‘DJ-6’ won our hearts – here “CL” denotes ‘clonal’ variety. Clonals are always harvested a bit later and if you have noticed none of the DJ1’s from any tea gardens are marked as pure chinas or clonals because it will be a mix of clonals as well as chinas. Only after full flushing becomes prominent, the separation of grades become eminent as each grade will have its own sufficient stock. It was beyond our expectation and we were surprised by the quality make of this First Flush tea. We invite you to try this lovely tea and judge for yourselves.

Dooteriah Royal Gold (CL) Dry Leaves:
This clonal variety has an attractive bloom, larger than normal size and stylish in appearance. Longish/elongated, well rolled and twisted. It has an overall greenish appearance which forms an inherit First Flush character. Apart from the overall greenish appearance, it has a flawless natural blend of complex set of colors – different shades of greens, browns, grays and whites. It has a beautiful luster with most of the tea leaves having a furry attire originating from marvelous tiny and shiny white hairs. The presence of silver hairs on tea leaves depict careful manufacture and a first instance of high quality tea. It has high content of silver tips or buds, kept intact, and got from early First Flush pluckings from lush green special clonal tea leaves. It has a marvelous spicy element added with its other aromatic properties. It has a fresh and sweet smell, honey toned, with mild saltiness. Slightly caramellic which runs parallel with a nutty nose like that of roasted almonds. It also comes with a marvelously crafted floral nose and fruity aroma

Dooteriah Royal Gold (CL) Infusion or Wet Leaves:
It has an authentic and even infusion with an overall appearance of green mixed with slight yellow and brown tinge here and there. The infusion is bright and lively and is very tempting to taste the cup. It is said that the infusion can foretell the quality of the cup and in this case, the cup looks to be real good. The temptation builds up even more with its sweet and lovely floral nose which seems decked up with a complex set of different varieties of floral essence. Slight veggie notes can be found as well accompanied by mild fruity and nutty character.

Castleton Moonlight: Darjeeling First Flush 2013
Dooteriah Royal Gold (CL) Cup or Liqour:

A beautiful golden brew that is light and bright in character. The body is light, but the sip you take in, fills your mouth with buttery effects. The cup has a welcoming smooth character with light and desirable astringency that affects upper part of your buccal cavity and slowly spreads to the middle of the tongue. It has an exceptional sweet honey toned quality flavor which seems to linger on as an aftertaste. It has a beautiful light floral flavor along with some nutty characteristics.
