NAMRING POOMONG UPPER
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 : One of the finest crus of the 2015 first flush! The magical colours and extraordinary fragrance of the leaves carry us away; here and there the mahogany patchwork is punctuated by emerald leaves whose aroma recalls green papaya and golden cashew.
Infused leaves : The infused leaves, glossy and pearly, exhale an aroma of candied persimmon. A floral backdrop liberates a wave of airy angelica.
Liquor : The liquor, whose orpiment-tinted robe is irresistibly lush, envelopes the palate with a fluffy sensation and pleasurable aromas subtly evoking myrrh.
A paradise « from beyond the skies ».
