SFTGFOP1 DJ6/2022 - Jardin Premier*
Spring Flush – Premium First Flush
This garden is situated at the summit of the Blue Mountain near Darjeeling Town, one of the historic stations of the famous « Toy Train » inaugurated in the 19th century. From these lands grow exclusive and unique crus, counted among the best in the world, in the heart of the Himalayas amidst the lush forests of rare, precious trees. On preserved land and surrounded by orange groves, these century-old tea plants deliver the magical harvests sought after by afficionados of prestigious First Flush Darjeeling teas.
Dried leaves: The whole leaves, thin and twisted, form a handsome mosaic of rich, verdant hues.
Infused leaves: A dapper palette of gourmet fragrances slowly reveals itself. A delicious scent of apricot jam sprinkled with violet petals precedes a tender aroma of fresh raspberry.
Liquor: The gold-coloured cup is haloed with pink reflections and expresses a delicious aroma of baked golden apple. The liquor’s soft and balanced texture floods the palate with a mysterious fragrance of wild orchid, punctuated by a gourmet note of white dragée.
Cold brew :
1 - place 10g of tea in 1 liter of spring water; keep in the fridge for about 12 hours.
2 - filter out the leaves then let the liqueur come to room temperature.
3 - best served in a large balloon glass, filled up to a third.
"Cold brew", a slow infusion in cold water, results in a further exploration of the infinite aromatic palette of this grand cru. The
cold allows new fragrances to express themselves in a dazzling and totally intoxicating way.
