Brew with fresh boiling water and infuse for 3 to 5 minutes
Darjeeling Gopaldhara Wonder Tea is a rare, unique type of Darjeeling Oolong. It boasts many of the characteristics made famous by Darjeeling First Flush Tea.
However, the fact that it is an Oolong means that it is especially sought-after by connoisseurs. The leaves are large and twisted with silver tips. When brewed, they produce wonderful, aromatic notes and a nutty aftertaste.
Its caffeine content amounts to around 37-mg per 8-oz cup. There is also a chance of it coming with Oolong Tea benefits, according to the latest scientific research, which includes improved digestion.

Facts About Oolong Tea
- White, Green, Black and Oolong all come from the same Camellia sinensis (Tea) plant. The difference between each one happens at the factory.
- This particular type undergoes semi-oxidation, which is why some call it the “in-between Tea.” In other words, its processing is in the middle of Green and Black Tea.
- Another name associated with Oolong is “Chinese Restaurant Tea.” This term refers to how it has become a popular choice while dining out in China - due, in part, to it aiding digestion.
- India, and particularly Darjeeling, isn’t well known for the production of Oolong. Our Darjeeling Gopaldhara Wonder Tea, then, is a true gem - indeed a “wonder.”
