Gopaldhara Red Thunder Gold is truly a special and unique tea from the highest elevated garden of Darjeeling Hills.
Every year we offer this tea as we feel this is a true experience of Autumnal Flush. Gopaldhara has its own special way of manufacturing this amazing tea. The leaves have been plucked during the last week of November from the plantations at an elevation of 7000Ft. The freezing temperature during the night is very cold and the growth of leaves is slow. This adds more complexity to the flavour profile.
