Dried leaves: The young leaves married to splendid ivory buds deliver notes evoking apricot sablé.
Infused leaves: A delicious blend of candy cane and lychee.
Liquor: Amber with ruby highlights. With an enveloping and umami texture, the liquor is sustained by nuances of rose, vivacious black currant and velvety white vanilla. The finale is crowned by a wisp of citron honey.
A legendary cru.

Issued from a garden respecting the principles of biodynamic agriculture.
Celebrating its special relationship with the planter of this garden, we proposes the first Darjeeling 2018 summer flush.
In the heart of the lush Mirik valley the tea plants of Phuguri, planted in 1878, are protected by a forest of bamboo and nurtured by the Mahananda river.
This jewel of A.O.P Darjeeling produces extraordinary teas whose best leaves are worked specially for us according to the principles of The French Art of Tea.
At the dawn of summer when the heavy heat mixes with the nourishing rain of the monsoon, the youngest leaves and their first buds are plucked by hand, benefiting from all the richness of this exceptional Terroir.
Loose tea, by the bulk.
