description

This aptly named oolong comes from the Blue Hills of South India. It exudes the floral character gained from the terroir in its aroma and taste. The fragrance is lifted and the liquor quite smooth giving the cup an endearing character. With a full-body the initial sips are subtly sweet as those buoyant notes of white flowers like lilies and orchids grow. Fruity hints, although subdued, play around the edges lending more depth to the cup. As the floral notes fade in the end, slight nuttiness shows and makes up a distinct, mellowed aftertaste.

taste

The liquor is quite smooth, feels ample in the mouth and starts with a gentle sweetness which hums along throughout the length of the cup. Notes of aromatic white flowers, reminiscent of Asiatic lily and white orchids gradually grow into prominence and gives the cup a distinct floral character. Subtle fruity accents can be picked up around the edges, adding more depth to the liquor. Towards the end, the floral character somewhat mellows down to reveal light nutty hints which lingers on in the aftertaste.
