« 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 an absolutely magnificent and prestigious parcel of land. Ample sunlight and pure water from the Himalayas provoke the formation of tasty 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. This Darjeeling Nouveau, an exclusive Mariage Frères creation, has been released early, fast-tracked from the estate to the cup.
Meticulous shaping has preserved the elegant whole leaves and their shades of rosewood as well as the beautifully fine buds in silvery velvet.
Dashing notes of lily of the valley evoke the spring character of this harvest. The scent of the infused leaves is slowly accentuated by luscious notes of ripe pineapple and passion fruit.
The luminous infusion recalls a precious shade of gold leaf. It exudes a joyful fragrance of buttercup and fresh spring flowers, then distils sweet and beautiful notes of fruity white peach and gold kiwi.
Tea from beyond the skies: an extraordinary Darjeeling Nouveau.

2 - filter out the leaves then let the liqueur come to room temperature.

"Cold brew", a slow infusion in cold water, results in a further exploration of the infinite aromatic palette of this grand cru. The cold allows new fragrances to express themselves in a dazzling and totally intoxicating way.
