SFTGFOP1 DJ3/2016 - 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 :
The silver buds, issued from a private parcel of land, are a sparkling green satin. A delicious note of shortbread precedes a smooth aroma of toasted walnut.
Infused leaves :
The magic of the infusion reveals a luminous jade exhaling a fruity score of white cherry. Then a charming, verdant fragrance appears evoking the fresh resin of centuries-old cedar trees.
Champagne gold, the elixir floods the palate with saveurs recalling sliced white almond and a sweet-floral hint of four o’clock flowers. The velvety, silky texture is persistent and elegantly blends with the rare harmony of fresh pistachio and frangipani flowers.
Premium and flavourful.
