FTGFOP1 DJ40/2016 - Jardin Premier*
Darjeeling First Flush
Inaugurated in 1864, this magnificent garden rich with romanticism culminates at nearly 2,000m in altitude. Nourished by two pure rivers and surrounded by forests and wild flowers, the centenary tea plants flourish on the steep sides of the valley facing the Himalayan peaks. By far one of the most famous and emblematic gardens in Darjeeling.
Buds the colour of the silver moon, elegantly blended with young leaves, exhale a woody-flowery note of fragrant ivy with a dash of intensely fruity black fig.
Tender green. The young leaves deliver pleasant aromas of hibiscus flower brightened with yuzu zest. The leave's perfume evolves little by little towards a fragrance of warm pistachio.
Pearly amber, the cup offers a signature of flowery sweet peas joined by delicate toffee before the palate is flooded with an aromatic buoyancy evoking delicious white peach and rich jackfruit.
A gourmet treat.
