Darjeeling First Flush
The garden of Singbulli (meaning « The Refuge of the Lion ») spreads out to the west of Darjeeling, in the heart of the fertile valley of Mirik. The most handsome parcels of land selected for and by Mariage Frères reach all the way to the summits (approaching 1,700 meters in altitude), amongst the pure lakes and picturesque monasteries. This prestigious appellation distinguishes itself by its majority of centenary tea plants giving flavourful harvests. A quintessential must-have in the confidential world of premium teas.
A composition of green saphire is woven in buds and newly sprouted leaves while a bouquet of juicy cranberry and chocolate macaron flows with refined opulence.
The flattering leaves are an ode to spring and the rebirth of nature, exhaling aromas of rose and blood peach.
The golden robe of the liquor develops a fruity sensation of stewed pomegranate blended with sweet red currant. The last sips offer a nectar whose notes of vanilla and airy green cardamom and tonka bean linger long on the palate.
A new sovereign of the senses.
