Red Thunder Gold Frosted Oolong 2018

Red Thunder Gold Frosted Oolong 2018 is a limited edition and one of the best Darjeeling Red Oolong from the high elevations of Gopaldhara. Extreme cold conditions induces special complex flavor of ripe fruits. Brews into bright orange cup with rich character and full rounded flavor. The aftertaste is clean and honey like sweet with prominent finish of orange which is very rare.

This Finest Darjeeling Autumn Flush Tea is made from AV2 bushes and looks blackish-red with abundant tips. It brews into a bright orange cup with excellent muscatel flavour with rich dense notes of ripe fruits and honey. The tea gives a sweet flavour but without any astringency. The aftertaste is well-defined and long lasting and exquisite. The sweetness and general feel are great, well balanced, soft as many black teas go but with a nice texture to it. There is enough flavor complexity that someone with a good imagination could describe a long list of what is really there, expressing more about fruit, and pinning down that mineral and earth further.  The fruit aspect is warm and rich, in the range of roasted sweet potatoes.

The tea is has been produced in mid November when the temperature starts approaching zero degrees in the night which leads to the leaves getting frosted in the night. The growth is very slow in the period and it is a very limited production.  It has been produced from very fine single leaf and buds and is plucked from the highest elevations which stretch from 5500 to 7000 FT. It has been well oxidized but you still get the prominent fruity flavour.

The appearance of the tea is blackish reddish leaf with few tips. It brews into a bright coppery infusion and a fully transparent orange liquor. The tea has exquisite clonal flavour with prominent Autumnal Muscatel character.
