    A light-bodied, immensely smooth cup which beams with fresh, floral attributes. Delicate flavors of white lilies and geranium envelope the palate right at the start which gradually grow into prominence and gives the cup a sweet, floral character. Muted undertones of fresh tropical fruits similar to muskmelon come through towards the middle and complements the exquisite floral aromatics of the liquor. Light citrusy undercurrents layered with rejuvenating hints of spring sap can be picked up around the edges and towards the end; making for a distinguished experience. The second steep brings forth succulent flavors of raw mango and is recommended with ice for a captivating experience.
