Darjeeling First Flush
- Issued from a garden in biodynamic conversion -
North Tukvar or « Flame of fire » is one of the most famous gardens of Darjeeling from where one can admire snow-covered Kanchenjunga – the third highest mountain in the world. Throughout the years, the plantation has become a model for sustainable living by producing its own natural compost and installing a gravity-based irrigation system. The surrounding bamboo forests preserve the stability of this rich terroir full of exceptional century-old tea plants.
Dried leaves: Magnificent downy buds with their handsome reseda green leaves reveal notes of buttery shortbread and coconut.
Infused leaves: Once infused, the supple leaves offer fragrances of pomegranate syrup and roasted chestnut.
Liquor: Golden amber. The smooth liquor’s aroma, reminiscent of pistachio milk, is a pure joy. In the cup, a perfumed wave of orange blossom and Damascus rose dance with delicious notes of Reine-Claude plum jam.
A First Flush Sovereign.
