The tea is a mouthful of many flavors with a touch of dark chocolate kind of aftertaste. A definite unique spring tea which has a mix of floral and musk just in the right balance.
Goomtee Spring Elegance is an oolong from the Spring Flush harvest. This year most gardens witnessed a dry spell during the spring time. The average temperature was higher and drier. Due to the dry weather the tea bushes were affected with GREEN FLIES which tend to suck the juice from the leaves making them wilted in the bush itself. This gives a special character to the leaves.
Goomtee took this as an opportunity to make this Exotic Oolong Tea. The tea is little oxidized and then pan fried giving the leaves a unique appearance and a rich mouthful flavour.
