SFTGFOP1 DJ-5/2021 - Jardin Premier*
Darjeeling First Flush 2021
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.
Beautiful, long, elegantly rolled leaves mingle with other ones as thin as pine needles. Their deep green is adorned with mysterious hints of abyss blue.
Sparkling notes of rhubarb resin transform into tender fragrances of candied violet flowers.
Soft gold with jade reflections, this liqueur with a sparkling bouquet of white currant is distinguished by a spring vivacity, a signature of early harvests. It excites the palate with smooth flavours of green almond and grape seed.
1 - place 15g of tea in 1 litre 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.
