Goomtee Second Flush Golden Tip- Review The chocolate-plum notes with notes of almond and lemon. It began as salt on the tip of the tongue, then turned to pure honeyed plums and muscatel on the middle and back, with a dry, astringent finish.

Muscatel taste in Tea is only represented by Makaibari Tea Estate, a lot of Tea estates and company have wrong connotation about Muscatel and they claim as their own. Muscatel taste is generated only in Second Flush Darjeeling Tea, all second flush doesnot represent the Muscatel. The word Muscatel in terms of tea is th...

The Muscatel is a house patent of Makaibari Tea Estate. The true flavour of what we know as Muscatel comes only from Muscatel. The Makaibari TE have a Muscatel because of the soil alti...

The aroma of the dry leaf of this tea really got my attention: rich and strongly aromatic, fruity, deep, but also light and fresh. I received this and the Singbulli first flush as samples from Harney and Sons.

Like the Singbulli, I prefer brewing this tea for 5 minutes, as recommended. However, I also experimented...

My wife's favorite tea. It is indeed fruity and floral. I'm still developing my tea tastebuds but this one is very tasty. It does have a bit of astringency in the aftertaste. Better than other Darjeelings I've tried.

Dear...God. Probably one of the best black teas I've ever had the pleasure to stick my tongue in. It embodies everything a Darjeeling should.

this seems like a well-balanced 2nd flush darjeeling. i imagine that this is basically what an archetypical 2nd flush tea should be. some muskiness, nuttiness, bitterness, and astringency. no single element is really overwhelming.
good tea

the dry leaves have a chocolaty and nutty aroma.
the musky flavor and aroma does come out when brewed. a somewhat nutty flavor. a fairly well balanced second-flush darjeeling at a pretty good value. i drink this one regularly.
