Darjeeling, Thé blanc
Perched 1,000m in altitude, the garden of Glenburn naturally finds its place in our unique collection of Darjeeling white tea Grand Crus. This exceptional harvest, the fruit of meticulous labour, is issued from a reserved parcel of land cultivated with great savoir-faire. Since 1859, the fog clinging to the foothills of the Himalayas has bathed the centenary tea bushes which gracefully emerge from the steep hills of this familial plantation. Only some rare kilos of fine buds and tender leaves are plucked each day.
Dried leaves: Elegantly twisted, the pearly buds exhale a fragrance evoking macaron and red currant jam.
Infused leaves: Celadon jade. Aromas of grilled pistachio and exotic wood abound.
Liquor: Golden amber. Evocative notes dazzle the liquor, recalling a bouquet of rose punctuated with white peach. The persistent, zesty finale resonates with mandarin.
A symphony of flavour.
