Description

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.

Why not buy it and try it today with The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company? We pack this Tea, like almost all of our products, fresh to order, ensuring quality and consistency.

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.”

The Gopaldhara Tea Estate

This Tea comes from the Gopaldhara Tea Estate, which finds itself in the Mirik Valley. It is one of the highest gardens in the region, consisting of some 172 hectares of Tea-growing land. Established in 1955, Gopaldhara has spent many years cultivating its outstanding reputation.

Darjeeling Gopaldhara Wonder Tea, in particular, showcases the estate’s finer qualities in a cup.

  5. Tastes more like an Assam tea! Malty, dark colour, not a trace of the much-vaunted "muscatel", and no fragrance at all; leaves a stain/coating on my porcelain cups!
    Aficionados of Assam tea would like it better than I do! Not nearly as good as I've had from other UK suppliers, and not a patch on what I used to drink in college in India, circa 1960, from tea broker single estate samples, courtesy of a classmate!
