From Mariage Frères

From the Arya Organic Tea Estate – situated not far from the town of Darjeeling, along the steep, staggering hills that rise 1820m in altitude – was established in 1865 on the same site as a well-known monastery chosen for its pure air, its sacred environment and its spiritual powers.

For more than twenty years, since 1990, Mariage Frères has worked side by side with the estate to create a worldwide exclusive – our Darjeeling “Rose d’Himalaya®”, an extraordinary tea known for its subtle fragrance of rose. Only a few parcels of land on the estate, reserved only to us, produce this unique tea.
A fine mist of essential rose oil is blended with the freshly cut leaves to further pronounce the delicate rose aroma naturally present.

Pleasant notes of ripened fruit (Muscatel grape) and stewed citrus float along the subtle rose flavour while a malty, prolonged finale evokes cacao bean. Luscious and magical!

Adventaggedon Day 15 – Tea 3/6

I’m not totally sure if this is the correct tea from the advent – but I guess I can see how “Darjeeling Rose d’Himalaya SFTGTOP1” might be a bit of a bitch to fit on the tag of the tea bag. It’s a bit of a wordy name, after all…

I’m not actually totally sure that I buy that this tea isn’t either rose flavoured or rose scented because it is mighty fucking rose flavoured. Like, in a way that seems SUPER unnatural. With that said, if it is natural then holy hell that might be one of the most floral and delicious darjeelings that I’ve ever had. And, I guess, even if it isn’t natural it’s still a damn good tea. I had it during the afternoon and was immediately pulled in my the bouquet of sweet rosewater notes mixed with a complex black tea profile. Malt, tannic, muscatel grapes, and lilac. Super dreamy, delicious tea.

I’m adding this to the list with Sakura Sakura for teas that I definitely want to order!
