Premium First Flush
«Tea from beyond the skies »
The celebrated garden of Namring was created in 1855 by the British. Cultivated at 1,525 meters in altitude, this cru is harvested from the oldest parcel of land known as Poomong, absolutely magnificent and prestigious. A pruning in autumn, ample sunlight and pure water from the Himalayas provokes an early formation of buds and hence the crafting of this grand millesime. The remarkable character of Namring’s terroir and the admirable work of the planters associated with the unique savoir-faire of Mariage Frères give rise to a rich splendor of lunar velvety shades.
Dried leaves :
The silver buds with reflections of jade unleash a fruity perfume of white mango and fresh hazelnut.
Leaves with nuances of celadon and mahogany exhale a fragrance of fern blended with notes of tender nougat.
Champagne-gold robe. An exquisite umami texture mingles with fruity intonations of starfruit and roasted apricot. A long aromatic finish floods the palate, extending the pleasure with notes of calisson enlivened with a glaze of pink currant.
From the heights of taste comes the first tea of the year!
