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 majestic silver tips that swath the young, indigo leaves exhale a perfume of fresh date and nougat.
Infused leaves: An elegant moiré of jade and silver, the leaves reveal a deliciously fruity-woody score of roasted guava.
Liquor: Champagne gold, the silky liquor pleasantly caresses the palate. A note of grilled pine nut precedes a gentle, zesty aroma of blood orange married to an airy fragrance of white orchid. Hints of rosy pink peppercorn prolong the enjoyment while a harmonious wisp of vanilla lingers long after.
The path to paradise!
