Darjeeling First Flush - Jardin Premier*
Situated in high altitude (around 2,300 m) in the north east of Darjeeling, Aloobari is, with its 23 hectares reserved for teas of exceptional quality, one of the most secretive and acclaimed gardens of the region. Its limited production is highly sought after and now crafted according to the methods of biodynamic agriculture.
Dried leaves :
With careful movements, the buds and the youngest leaves from the plant are plucked at dawn by harvesters while the nourishing mist caresses the steep slopes of this confidential parcel. The aromatic score evokes the layered nuances of candied Bengal quince, joined by a gourmet note of golden pistachio.
Infused leaves :
Iridescent mahogany, the leaves exhale a fruity register of Muscatel grape riding a flowery wave of violet and fresh, redolent ivy resin.
Golden amber. The liquor delivers the airy and delicious perfume of wild almond trees in bloom. The cup, supple and graceful, evokes the breath of a warm summer breeze wafting through fig trees whose juicy fruit swell in the sunlight, highlighted by a hint of subtle, round macadamia nut.
Secret and gourmand.
