Darjeeling Premium First Flush
- Premium Tea Estate -
« Tea from beyond the skies »
One of this years very first crus from Darjeeling, this tea comes from a high quality plot of land in Jhinglam in the garden of Namring whose slopes rise some 1,400m into the clouds and is exclusively reserved for Mariage Frères.
Leaves : a swarm of young buds and whole leaves exude a fresh and invigorating bouquet of watermelon, star fruit and green apple, backed by an evocative note of green almond.
Nose : woody and floral, fresh notes of alpine resin, persimmon and black cherry jam.
Liquor : a shimmering, honey-yellow robe offering a fragrance of crystallised lavender flower. A harmonious liquor with rich notes of lychee and wild blackberry followed by a firm hint of prune and floral aromas.
A Darjeeling as delicate and tender as Wonderland.
