Revered Rare Teas. Too precious to drink.
Last week I accepted an invitation to discover Jo Malone‘ s new fragrance collection made by Rare Teas. An exclusive event made for men only, where Jo Malone experts initiated us to the world of Rare Teas, through an interesting experience between tea tasting and discovering new scents.
From Chinese foothills to the Himalayas. Centuries of craftmanship. Reinterpreted today. The ancient art of the tea master. The ingenuity of the perfumer. Brought together in the exquisite facets of six rare teas. For the first time infused straight from the leaf into refined fragrances. Each one encased in the pure incandescence of its bottle.
Silver Needle Tea
Softest Silver Needle Tea. For centuries a delicacy reserved for the imperial family of China. Inspired by its delicately floral, supple, and velvety nuances. Enriched with opulent rose. Tender with sage. Enveloping with musk. A glistening, romantic rare tea infusion.
Radiant Darjeeling Tea. Richly floral with an exotic sweetness. Often found high in the foothills of the Himalayas. Vibrant spring buds grown on the steepest slopes among mountain mists. Luminous with jasmine. Cool with freesia. Enticing with an apricot note of Indian davana. A heady, sublime rare tea infusion.
Jade Leaf Tea
Vivid Jade Leaf Tea. Inspired by the smoothest Japanese sencha. Bright new buds, steamed to preserve their distinct green colour and flavour. Bracing with a note of pomelo. Textured with sesame. Herbacious with maté leaf. A crisp, invigorating rare tea infusion.
Delectable Oolong Tea. Rounded with a buttery softness. Grown in rolling mountains. Handpicked, dried on bamboo and heated for a precious woody elegance. Withered, curled and twisted. Perfectly formed. Rich with bitter cocoa and almondy tonka bean. Earthy with hay. Sweet with tobacco leaf. A cocooning, creamy rare tea infusion.
Midnight Black Tea
Carnal Midnight Black Tea. Deeply seductive. Intrinsically exotic. Infused with puerh, matured for a sensual intensity. Sun drenched tea leaves, ever more intoxicating with time. Oriental with vanilla absolute. Amber rich with labdanum. Smokey with guaiacwood. A rich, alluring rare tea infusion.
Golden Needle Tea
Magnetic Golden Needle Tea. Notes of leather and spice in the air. The warm wooden interior of Chinese tea houses in cloud-veiled mountains. A deep, burning gold. Smooth with sandalwood. Addictive with glowing benzoin resin. A dark, mysterious rate tea infusion.
The collection is currently available at Jo Malone stores for you to discover the fragrance that perfectly matches your own personality!
