Darjeeling First Flush
Ambootia (which means « Land of the mango trees ») is one of the most famous gardens of Darjeeling in the foothills of the Himalayas. For over twenty years, this majestic plantation has been cultivated in complete harmony with this exceptional Terroir according to the principles of biodynamic agriculture, methods which have contributed to the fame of this prestigious appellation.
Dried leaves :
The sublime buds and the most handsome first leaves, harvested one by one, weave a chromatic tableau of shimmering ebony. The prevailing aromas are distinguished by delicate notes of bamboo resin, apple-cinnamon and bright jade.
Infused leaves :
A luminous Viridian-green entices us with an elixir of flitting vetiver wrapped in a gourmet note of stewed apricot.
Opalescent copper robe. The liquor is an absolute delicacy with a generous aromatic persistence recalling fresh fig, underscored by an ethereal fragrance of white lotus stamen.
Spiritual and mesmerizing.
