First ever darjeeling – Goomtee Estate from Yatra Tea Company.
So, going into this I’ve never really had Indian tea before so I can only really compare this to Chinese, Taiwanese, and Japanese teas. I made this two ways – gongfu like I would a Chinese black and as the instructions said: 2.5g to 177ml for 3-4 minutes.
Gongfu – it tasted like a blend of a traditional Yunnan black and a Yunnan Yue Guang Bai white tea but with more fruitiness.
Per the instructions, it tasted kind of vegetal and kind of fruity and the empty cup smelled faintly of gummy bears.
I preferred it gongfu, but that’s probably just what I’m expecting to do when I make tea. All in all, I’m happy with this purchase, especially at half off during a flash sale.
Flavors: Floral, Fruity, Vegetal
