KISSED ORIENTAL BEAUTY
Blue Tea™ - Jardin Premier*
Mariage Frères discovered this Blue Tea™ during a trip to the magnificent province of Guizhou, in the southwest of China. In the heart of this mountainous isolated terrain – almost 1,200 metres in altitude – grow centenary tea trees nourished by abundant rain and a perfect temperature all year round. The singular quality of this tea resides in the natural, mini-oxidation of the young tender leaves caused by a small insect hungry for tree sap. Natural juices are therefore liberated from the leaves, imparting a gourmet touch to the liquor.
