Detail
This batch comes from tea plants on the Delmas Bari plot. A refined and refreshing tea with notes of rose, citrus zest, and grass ending melting into a delicate sweet-tart flavor.

Situated in Darjeeling on a plot on the North Tukvar low-altitude plantation, the Delmas Bari garden, named after the founder of Palais des Thés, was planted on 18 March 2006. In the best season, the plantation produces a remarkable tea thanks to the planter's expertise as well as the quality of tea plants. The planter, G. Somani, has been working with Palais des Thés for many years, and is one of the best in Darjeeling.


François-Xavier Delmas' choice:
“It is very moving to taste this early plucking from the plot where I planted the first tea plant. This is a rare experience in terms of freshness, delicacy and refinement.”

Specificities:
- Origin: Darjeeling, India
- Tea color: black tea

Dry leaves:
- Appearance: an exceptional plucking; the leaves are minimally shaped, with plenty of silver downy buds
- Colors: pale green, dark green, dark brown and silver
- Scents: straw, fruity, brioche

Brewed leaves (infusion):
- Scents: vegetal, pronounced floral, fruity, herbal, vanilla

Liquor:
- Color: pale gold
- Texture: smooth and round to start, followed by a delicate astringency that lines the palate
- Flavors: a touch of sweetness and a subtle acidity
- Aromas: floral (rose), zesty, herbal, vegetal, straw, fruity (lychee, citrus), vanilla, fresh almond
- Aromatic profile and length in the mouth: very lively and harmonious to start with aromatic herbs and zesty rose. A lovely sweeter finish in the mouth with notes of fruit, vanilla and almond sustained by delicate sweet and acidic flavors
