Nestled in the vicinity of Kurseong, the « City of the White Orchid », Castleton has been one of Darjeeling’s most famous gardens since 1885. Enjoying an exceptional terroir, the planter passionately refines his methods so as to perpetually improve the quality of these harvests. The tea bushes planted at the beginning of the golden age of tea are the subject of special attention in order to bring out their aromatic quintessence which makes for the remarkable identity of this excellent garden. An ode to the senses and to pleasure.
Elegant buds and fine leaves make up a landscape of colours akin to a forest bathed in sunlight, where the play of light and shadow unveils dazzling greens with amber moiré.
They offer an opulent and fruity bouquet of infinite pleasures where persimmon and ripe pineapple are the major accords.
Bright with life, golden with copper highlights, the liquor enchants with a very expressive nose of lychee and guava. Its rich, perfectly balanced texture delicately and slowly reveals an unforgettable fruity aroma.
