    aroma

    taste

    A full-bodied, well balanced cup tipped with vibrant green attributes. It starts out on a brisk fruity note, which however subside to reveal a heart resonating with sweet, green flavors which can be perceived throughout the length of the cup. Uplifting citrusy accents can be perceived around the edges, which smoothens the mild astringency from woody undercurrents which shore up towards the finish. Captivating scent of green pistachio can be picked up in the aftertaste, making for a memorable finish.
