SFTGFOP1 DJ2/2015 - Jardin Premier*
Darjeeling First Flush
The garden of Singbulli (meaning « Refuge of the Lions ») spreads out to the west of Darjeeling, in the heart of the fertile valley of Mirik. The most beautiful parcels selected for and by Mariage Frères extend up to the summits (almost 1,700 meters in altitude), amongst the picturesque monasteries and pure, crystal-clear lakes. Thanks to its hundred year old tea plants, this prestigious appellation bears exquisite harvests. An iconic must-have in the confidential world of premium teas.
Dried leaves :
The buds associated with majestic first leaves make up a precious finery of green sapphire and bronze. This refined opulence opens with an elegant fragrance of acacia flower punctuated by a sweet, mellow note of white nougat.
Infused leaves :
Visually flattering leaves feature a flamboyant jade hue. Its perfume is an ode to spring and the rebirth of nature, evoking notes of fresh tree sap and green almond.
A precious orange robe resembling the imperial topaz of the Maharajahs. On the palate, the liquor develops a fruity amber sensation, followed by a hint of pomegranate caramel accentuated with a dash of lemon balm serving as an elegant and gourmet digression.
A new sovereign of the senses.
