FTGFOP1 DJ18 - Jardin Premier*
Premium First Flush
Starting in 1852, just two years before the creation of Mariage Frères, the garden of Puttabong (meaning « Home of Green Leaves ») seeded their first tea plants. Innovation and quality exemplify the values of this pioneering plantation which works to preserve the Terroir through sustainable agriculture in harmony with nature. The purity of the harvest is matched only by the supreme pleasure of its taste.
The whole leaves are preserved by an elegant shaping which gives them a majestic look of drapery. Their hue mixes luminous shades of green and emerald with amber reflections of rosewood.
A fresh wisp of pink grapefruit peel elegantly melds with the sweetness of longan.
The cup lights up with the brilliance of fine gold and hints of jade. The rich and honeyed bouquet accompanies this suave liquor, resolutely sweet and fruity like ripe papaya.
1 - place 15g of tea in 1 litre of spring water; keep in the fridge for about 12 hours.
2 - filter out the leaves then let the liqueur come to room temperature.
3 - best served in a large balloon glass, filled up to a third.
"Cold brew", a slow infusion in cold water, results in a further exploration of the infinite aromatic palette of this grand cru. The cold allows new fragrances to express themselves in a dazzling and totally intoxicating way.
