An organic offering from this revered tea garden, this cup is immensely smooth with a delicate floral texture and notes of Asiatic lilies and fuchsia peonies.

Subte fresh-green accents shore up towards the end which however ebb to finish on a luminous fragrance evoking dapper camellias, making for a distinguished feel on the palate.
