Darjeeling Premium First Flush
« Tea from Beyond the Skies »
The parcels of tea in the Namring garden, created in 1855 by the British, belong to Jhinglam and Poomong at 1,220 and 1,370 meters in altitude. The remarkable character of the Namring Terroir as well as the combination of the planter's admirable work coupled with Mariage Frères' unique savoir-faire give birth to this splendid tea with myriad aromatic nuances.
Dried leaves : The sublime buds, tender and supple to the touch, evoke a note of Bengal quince and ripe Reine-Claude plum while the heart of the leaves exhale a gourmet perfume of crème brûlée.
Infused leaves : The magic of the infusion unveils the brilliant imperial green hue of the leaves. A sensual, flowery aura recalling genepi and violet hypnotise the taster before turning to an elegant wisp of almond milk.
Liquor : Flowing silk embroidered with gold. The liquor mesmerises with remarkably rich sensations and voluptuous perfumes of precious incense and rare vanilla. An irresistible aromatic impression of camellia honey blends with the unexpected vivacity of red fruit and sugar-apple.
A premium taste.
