«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.
Dried leaves :
The long-awaited spring shoots are masterfully crafted into elegant twists. They abound in majestic, downy buds in pure shades of edelweiss.
A breeze charged with fruity vigour, evoking crisp young Mirabelle plum and green mango jam, emanates from the leaves.
The infusion dazzles the eye with crystalline, solar tones akin to golden beryl. Supple and lively, the liqueur diffuses an unforgettable fragrance: the rich and intense accents of muscatel grape and pink guava deliciously intermingle with a note of fresh hazelnut. It transports us to the heart of the tea estate in full bloom, invigorated by the spring sun, and eloquently expresses the quintessence of this unique terroir and season.
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.
