Darjeeling summer flush 2020
Inaugurated in 1864, this magnificent garden full of romance rises to nearly 2,000m in altitude. Nourished by the pure flowing waters of two rivers, the centenary tea plants flourish along the steep sides of the valley facing the peaks of the Himalayas, surrounded by forests and wild flowers. One of the most celebrated and emblematic gardens of Darjeeling.
Dried leaves: The thin, slender leaves are adorned with rich shades of mahogany and express an aroma of warm sesame and almond.
Infused leaves: A fruity evocation of Black Muscat follows the sweet scent of candied fruit.
Liquor: The cup illuminates with its copper-coloured liquor from which a fragrance of chestnut emanates. Its velvety texture gradually exhales a gourmet note of French toast and dried fruits, deliciously resonating in the memory for long after.
