Golpaldhara's Rohini estate Gold Wire Autumnal Darjeeling, offers a luscious late season treat. The cup is medium amber gold in color, and medium-light bodied. The aroma is fruity, suggesting muscatel grape and plum, but the cup holds much more. Initial taste sensations are those of toast, cocoa and honey, then opening up to plum and fig, hints of spice, and in the super smooth finish, a wonderful nuance of floral notes. Oolong fans may enjoy this one, as it holds similarities with Zhongshan Baiye Oolong from China with all the complexities and richness.

This tea contains a medium level of caffeine | Steep at 212° for 3 minutes.

How long have you been growing tea and what got your started?
I began working when I was 18 years old and worked at Rohini estate for the past five years. I work as a plucker in the Rohini and Gopaldhara gardens during the annual harvest.

What is your favorite part of growing tea?
Each season I work with the same group of women picking tea. Many have become my good friends, so it's enjoyable to spend a day in the field hearing their stories.

Conversely, what is the hardest part of your job?
The weather in Darjeeling is unpredictable and it rains a lot. Being outside when the weather changes and the rains come down is my least favorite part.

Are there any tips you can give on how to best brew your tea? Any advice?
Darjeeling tea is very famous and the garden receives many foreign visitors. I am glad to know that I help produce something for which my country of India is well known.
