Green tea - EARL GREY VERT PRIMEUR 2021
Our 'Earl Grey Vert Primeur' is a combination of Spring green tea from the Zhejiang region in China with Calabrian early bergamot oil made in November 2020 with the first harvest of the last season.
Its powerful fragrance reveals on tasting an equally powerful cup in which alternate green and slightly bitter notes mixed with a succession of fruity and zesty notes among which those of lime, sweet lemon, grapefruit and the one more discreet of tangerine offering a calm finish with floral notes.
A powerful vintage in which all the liveliness of bergamot is fully expressed. Over the past ten years, this crop is one of my favorite confides our flavorist.
