SFTGFOP DJ3/2015 - Jardin Premier*
Darjeeling First Flush
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 Darjeelings.
Dried leaves :
Freshly picked young silvery buds and flowery orange pekoes evoke a generous and juicy fruity score of first white damson plums and passion fruit.
Infused leaves :
The satiny, emerald green colour shines in the spotlight. A fresh and cool atmosphere expands with heart notes eliciting Muscatel grape and mountain apple, enhanced by a draught of pearly white gardenias.
Buttercup yellow, the elixir flows over the palate with accents of wild lavender and royal fern, joined by a gentle note of toasted hazelnut.
A « Grand Cru » of Darjeeling.
