    Vegetal with notes of fresh legumes, cantaloupe and mild nutty accents

    Gold

    taste

    A medium-bodied, lively cup which feels ample in the mouth and starts with distinct vegetal notes which hum along throughout and defines the flavor profile of the liquor. Light tropical fruity accents similar to cantaloupe are discernible towards the middle, rendering a pleasant texture to the cup. Subtle undertones of fresh legumes shore up around the edges which however subside to finish on soft nutty tinctures akin to hazelnuts. Delectable stone-fruity accents can be picked up in the aftertaste, making for a memorable experience of Organic black tea from this boutique estate.
