Darjeeling Premium First Flush
« Tea from Beyond the Skies »
The parcels of land 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 a rich splendour of myriad aromatic nuances.
Dried Leaves: The young leaves married to sublime lunar-grey buds deliver a delicate perfume of green cardamom and candied kumquat.
Infused Leaves: A handsome deep green, the leaves liberate persistent fragrances of dew-kissed peony and sun-ripened pineapple.
Liquor: Elegantly amber, the liquor opens with a captivating fruity aroma. The liquor swaddles the palate with a velvety texture akin to cotton flower and green mango, scored with delicious notes of almond milk.
An awakening of the senses.
