    Sip into a cup that starts off with a soft floral fragrance, redolent of honeysuckle and rose. Sweet and fruity flavors, similar to grapes and apricot, come through rendering depth and texture to the liquor. Experts talk about the muted honeyed tones of meringue. The second steep is mellower and beams with delicious, fresh-fruity flavors, akin to mandarin orange.
