    A medium-bodied, mellow cup which starts with pronounced oaky flavors and mingle with soft notes of dried berries and fresh hazelnut towards the middle. The flavors are clear, layered and feel ample in the mouth. Nuanced undertones of fire-wood interlaced with stone-fruity accents similar to apricot are discernible around the edges, adding a layer of depth and liveliness to the liquor. Muted nutty characters linger on in the aftertaste; making for a memorable experience of Summer chinary balck tea from the splendid hills of Darjeeling.
