SFTGFOP1 DJ2/2015 - 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 ») planted their first tea plants in Darjeeling. 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 :
The care taken during harvesting of the young, blooming leaves ensures the immaculate silver buds often associated with flowery orange pekoes, as luminous as black diamonds. The nose is soothed with a sunny note of pink lotus pistil blended with crisp elderflower.
Infused leaves :
The pearly green leaves evoke gentle wild raspberry accentuated by a breeze of citrus and neroli. This fascinating alchemy in turn awakens a rich note of creamy, gourmet date pudding.
A robe of golden organza. The liquor caresses the palate like a healing balm daubed with silky white honey, joined by a hint of delicate tuberose.
A green paradise.
