Blue tea™ - Jardin Premier*
This time our explorer’s spirit has led us far from the beaten path, where we discovered an autumnal harvest, an unusual, unique tea grown on a new, southern continent. Now, like Australia, New Zealand makes an entrance on our list of teas. Located in the district of Waikato (Maori for “flowing water”) — named after the largest river in the country and known for its ecological diversity with its green hills, caves, forests and lakes — a small tea estate on North Island has devoted itself to producing 100% organic tea.
The dark green leaves have a pronounced aroma dominated by clover honey with a touch of vanilla and a hint of sandal wood.
The liquor, shimmering gold, exhales a floral bouquet of poppy accompanied by a subtle and fresh note of cedar.
Well balanced, this sparkling tea has extraordinary persistence.
This faraway grand cru is unique and magnificent.
