Gopaldhara Wonder Tea WT-17 2nd Flush Darjeeling tea 2010:
We are really lucky and happy to have this tea in our list since we were waiting for the Castleton Moonlight 2nd flush tea but none of the samples could meet our satisfaction level, we tried various “Tippy clonal” and “Moonlight” samples from Castleton tea estate this year but none of the teas could compete with past two year’s moonlight tea which people really appreciated in the past, we were also sad as we were among the first ones to market this tea but I personally believe that at the end of the day people will appreciate a cup of good tea and not the garden or a type of tea, so this year its simply NO – NO Castleton Moonlight and to be honest I would not even have the tea in my list for even half the price of what we use to pay in the past. Anyways I’m really happy that this year I got this Gopaldhara Wonder Tea WT-17 2nd Flush 2010 , this tea is plucked from an altitude of 3200 feet from young AV2 and P312 clonal bushes of the plantation, the dry leafs are well twisted and has a very fruity aroma in this state and consists of long unbroken golden tips, when steeped for complete 5 minutes the dry leafs opens up very beautifully giving out a delicious aroma of ripe mangoes, each sip in the cup gives out clear hints of fresh fruits and chocolates and ends on the palate with a unique honey like after taste.
We recommend all tea lovers to try this tea and we assure a 100% quality satistfaction guarantee for this tea

Turzum sftgfop-1 clonal delight DJ 23 2nd Flush Darjeeling tea 2010:
The 2nd Flush harvest started a little late in few of the gardens in Darjeeling, so we were eagerly waiting for some of the finest teas that this harvest could offer us. On the 27th of June 2010 the Superintendent of the Sungma and Risheehat Plantation (Mr. Jha) gave us a call saying that he had made the finest batch of 2nd Flush tea of the year and suggested us not to wait for more if we wanted to have the best as usual. Actually we were also waiting for some good muscatel teas from Gardens like Castleton and Risheehat but when we received the sample of Turzum sftgfop-1 clonal delight /Organic Dj23 of 2nd Flush 2010 we were absolutely satisfied with what was offered to us, this particular batch of tea is simply very classic and traditional Darjeeling 2nd Flush tea and to be very honest we have seen this type of typical traditional 2nd Flush Darjeeling tea after a long time. The most difficult part for procuring this tea was that the marketing department of this garden had offered this tea for a open bid among the finest Darjeeling tea buyers around the world, renowned merchants from all over the globe were invited to place a bid for this wonderful gem of a tea ,somehow we were lucky to have this batch as one of the biggest Japanese buyer placed his bid a little late and of coarse we also achieved this tea as because we share a very friendly relationship with most of the Managers and owners of the plantations in Darjeeling. This tea has already made a stand of its own in the Darjeeling tea market since last year, the most attractive thing about this tea is that it has a beautiful ornamental value as the dry leafs are well twisted and consists of long unbroken golden tips ,the dry leafs gives out some very unique flavor of typical Indian spices which is very rare to find in any other Darjeeling teas, when steeped for about 5 minutes the tea gives out a pretty bright reddish liquor in the cup , each sip in the cup gives clear hints of fresh roses, almonds and spices like cloves and ends on the palate with a very unique classic muscatel flavor . I would rather call this tea a complete package of 2nd flush exclusive teas. A tea which cannot be further replicated. In fact the best among all Darjeeling 2nd Flush teas
