Blue tea™ - Jardin Premier*
Nepal First Flush 2017
Mariage Frères reveals its newest opus, an icon from a unique Terroir in the Nepalese foothills draped in pure air and imbued with crystalline water. The east of Nepal is known for being an illustrious tea-producing region using only the finest plants. Mariage Frères has worked a confidential parcel of land, situated between 1,000 and 2,000 meters in altitude, from where this extraordinary Grand Cru Blue Tea™ is issued.
Dried leaves :
The magnificently pearly, wispy buds unleash a perfume of candied kumquat and wild blackberry with a hint of liquorice.
Infused leaves :
The infused buds evoke a fruity-woody aroma of gourmet blue plum.
Amber gold colour. A seductive harmony of frosted Madagascar vanilla and angelica precedes a delicious note of roasted meringue, intense and lingering. A subtle smoothness evoking mango flower honey floods the palate with a thousand nuances, enhanced by a creamy hint of sweet almond.
Delicious and celestial.
