FTGFOP1 DJ3/2015 - Jardin Premier*
Darjeeling First Flush
« The Sanctuary of the Moon ». Situated in the north of Kurseong high atop Tiger Hill, this garden founded in 1852 soaks in the beneficent virtues of the Moon.
Dried leaves :
The tender buds and young flowery orange pekoes are imbued with fruity fragrances evoking mangosteen and nashi pear.
Infused leaves :
Dark absinthe green. An irresistible aroma of fresh hazelnut and first-harvest Mirabelle plum entices the drinker.
Sequoia brown, clear and crystalline. Lively white currant and blood peach blend with the sweet floral notes of a newly sprouted fern in springtime in a rich, prolonged sensation.
As joyful as a first day in spring.
