SFTGFOP1 DJ6/2016 - Jardin Premier*
Darjeeling 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.
Dried leaves :
A pastel constellation of buds in pure white and jade green deliver a gourmet score of strawberry confit and black elderberry highlighted with a note evoking fresh cardamom.
Infused leaves :
Pearly emerald green leaves diffuse seductive waves of apple blossom and a sweet note of narcissus.
A shimmering, gilded robe. With absolute delicacy, the liquor leaves a silky impression on the palate. A fragrant and pleasant persistence blending delicious white fig and graceful hibiscus punctuate the tasting. The cup expresses notes of floral resin cut with a hint of white raspberry, culminating with a velvety sensation reminiscent of voluptuous lilac.
The essence of paradise.
