Darjeeling Premium First Flush
- Premium Tea Estate -
« Tea from Beyond the Skies »
The parcels of tea 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 this splendid tea with myriad aromatic nuances.
Leaves : artfully hand-crafted with deep green-brown colours and silver tips
Nose : airy, with a long-lasting aroma of fresh peony and stewed plum
Liquour : clear, golden yellow with a bright, supple body and round, harmonious tannins; the first cup opens with frank and woody aromas that enliven with vigorous notes of Muscatel grape and apricot, crowned by slightly resinous, slightly spicy tones.
From the highest mountain peaks comes a vivacious spring Darjeeling.
