Darjeeling Summer Flush
This black tea is an exceptional Mariage Frères creation, made possible by the magic of Himalayan soil and climate combined with the meticulous, committed know-how of the owner of the tea estate of Ambootia.
The splendid, ample leaves of a second-flush Darjeeling are similar to a blue tea-rolled by hand one by one, they retain an original, grassy appearance.
Their scent of ripe mangosteen is particularly fragrant.
The sensual, amber liquor yields a lively, sparkling cup that is long in the mouth yet smooth, evoking exotic fruit balanced by a hint of citrus flavours.
A true sensation.
