Darjeeling Summer Flush
“Tea from beyond the skies”.
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 aromatic splendour.
Dried leaves : The silver tips and young, ebony-inflected leaves evoke a deliciously fruity note of longan and stewed blackberry.
Infused leaves : Varnished mahogany, an intense aroma of orange blossom honey replete with floral intonations.
Liquor : Hypnotic ruby. A veiled fragrance of gingerbread and Bengal quince accent the liquor. After the first cup, a sweet woody aroma ensues, followed by a charming and reassuring note of golden marzipan while airy angelica lifts the taste higher, accentuating the infinite delight of this tea.
