Black tea, Nepal.
Organic tea estate
Mariage Frères unveils the newest opus in its haute couture collection, inviting you to discover this emblematic Grand Cru originating from a unique terroir veiled in the fresh, mountain air and imbued with the crystalline waters of the Nepal foothills. A perfect union of Mariage Frères rigorous standards blended with the talents of the planters.
Leaves: a selection of only the youngest, finest leaves, delicately twisted by hand then oxydised – mimicking a Formosa blue tea – though conserving its elegant duvet of silvertips and releasing a light aroma of rosebud and longan.
Nose: velvety fig plays with the sweetness of Bengal quince, marrying perfectly with the light notes of vanilla and cooked caramel.
Liquor: a deep, warm amber in which smooth, fragrant notes coalesce, possessing an ample body slightly accentuated by notes of honey and malt.
Magnificent and rare tea from the Himalayas.
How to prepare this black tea:
