« Tea from beyond the skies »
The parcels of tea in the Namring garden, created in 1855 by the British, belong to Jhinglam and Poomong at 1,220 and 1,370 meters in altitude. The remarkable character of the Namring Terroir as well as the combination of the planter's admirable work coupled with Mariage Frères' unique savoir-faire give birth to this splendid tea with myriad aromatic nuances.
This Darjeeling Nouveau, an exclusive Mariage Frères creation, has been released early, fast-tracked from the estate to the cup.
Sumptuous whole leaves and tender buds with undulating forms whose jade hues are punctuated with a touch of platinum.
Their absolutely divine scent blends the sensuality of rosebud with the fruitiness of melon syrup. A few sparkling notes of Victoria pineapple coalesce at the end.
As golden as a bouquet of mimosa, the sparkling liqueur twinkles with the precious down of silvery buds. Like caressing the palate, one can intensely perceive all the freshness of spring, between mock orange honey, green fig jam and crunchy mirabelle plum. A gem of Darjeeling.
Tea from beyond the skies: an extraordinary Darjeeling Nouveau.
