Tea from beyond the Sky
Issued from Jhinglam and Poomong, two extraordinary divisions of the Namring garden created in 1855 by the British, these parcels of land are found between 1,220 and 1,370 metres in altitude. The admirable work of the planters, the unique savoir-faire of Mariage Frères and the remarkable character of the Namring terroir give rise to a rich splendour of lunar velvety shades.
The golden buds and young, marbled mahogany leaves immerse us in the heart of a red cedar forest, blended with delightfully rich, pearly marzipan.
Polished amaranth wood evokes the sweetness of delicious wild berries stewed in a cauldron married to a note of moist vine shoot.
Amber rose. The velvety aroma of chestnut honey and toasted pistachio is seductive. A score of cocoa truffle and juicy grape brings a gourmet sweetness to the cup.
