FTGFOP1 DJ4/2022 – Jardin Premier*
Spring Flush - Premium First Flush
At the heart of the lush valley of Mirik unfurl the tea plants of Turzum (in Tibetan ‘agora’ or ’the market square’) garden, planted in 1863. Each year, this gem of AOP Darjeeling produces extraordinary teas whose best leaves are worked specially for Mariage Frères according to the demanding principles of The French Art of Tea. Raised in a cool, misty climate with abundant rainfall, the youngest leaves and their first buds are harvested by hand and benefit from all the richness of this exceptional Terroir.
Fine and slightly twisted, the leaves and buds alternate between shades of anthracite, rosewood and jade.
They express a harmonious bouquet in which intoxicating scents of cardamom flowers accompany heady notes of orange blossom.
The brilliant liqueur ennobles the cup with precious tones of antique gold leaf. On the palate, a round and suave body delivers beautiful fruity notes of ripe medlar, resonating with a subtle hint of plum blossom.
1 - place 10g of tea in 1 liter of spring water; keep in the fridge for about 12 hours.
2 - filter out the leaves then let the liqueur come to room temperature.

, a slow infusion in cold water, results in a further exploration of the infinite aromatic palette of this grand cru. The cold allows new fragrances to express themselves in a dazzling and totally intoxicating way.
