Gopaldhara Red Thunder Oolong 2018 is a limited edition finest Autumn Flush Darjeeling tea produced from the frosted leaves. This finest autumn flush tea is made from clonal bushes and looks blackish red with abundant tips.

Extreme cold weather conditions at high elevation induce a special & complex flavor into the tea. The tea is well oxidized but you still get the prominent fruity flavor.

The tea brews into a fully transparent orange liquor cup with excellent muscatel flavor & rich dense notes of ripe fruits. The flavor profile includes plenty of fruits, in warm, soft, earthy and mineral context very approachable and well-balanced. The tea is sweet without any astringency. The aftertaste is well-defined, long lasting and exquisite.
