DONYI POLO WHITE TEA
Thé blanc, Arunachal Pradesh
Donyi Polo (literally « Sun » and « Moon ») is a garden situated in the foothills of the Himalayas, in the heart of Arunachal Pradesh at the borders of China, Myanmar and Bhutan. Mariage Frères offers this brand new discovery from its latest voyage: a magical and rare white tea, issued from tea plants cultivated in harmony with nature. Just a stone’s throw from the garden flows the river Siang, its pure mountain water originating in Tibet, nourishing this fertile valley and imparting the perfect conditions for tea plants. Welcome to the new world!
Dried leaves: Magnificent, flamboyant ivory buds unleash delicious aromas of lychee blended with fresh and woody hints of cardamom.
Infused leaves: The buds are rich with fragrances evoking galangal and white almond.
Liquor: Glittery gold. A heart note of cedar and golden raisin caresses the palate. A fresh, vibrant wave of green orange dances with caramelized notes of palmier.
A return to grace.
