Nestling in the Mirik valley, Gopaldhara is one of the highest gardens in Darjeeling. This Grand Cru is made from a blend of the finest modern cultivars, including AV2. The production of second flushes involves a more marked oxidation of the leaves.

A black tea with a delicately powdery texture and a smooth, sweet taste revealing both floral and gourmet notes.
