NAMRING HIGH MOUNTAIN
EX14/2018 - Blue tea™
« 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 downy buds and full, twisted young leaves unleash an aroma of blueberry glaze.
Infused leaves: A bouquet of buttercup scored with the fresh fragrance of fern.
Liquor: Shimmering gold leaf. The enveloping umami texture is joined by rich notes of sultana and almond. Fruity notes of stewed cherry sprinkled with cardamom flood the palate before a silky and seductive finale evokes warm biscuit drizzled with elderberry syrup.
