Immensely fragrant; reminiscent of Asiatic lily, hyacinth, muskmelon and hint of fresh greens
A light-bodied, velvety smooth cup tipped with radiant floral attributes. The palate is filled with an aromatic suppleness, similar to Asiatic lilies and hyacinth which gradually grows into prominence and reverberates throughout. Delicious fruity undertones, similar to muskmelon interlaced with a hint of greens come through distinctly around the edges and towards the end; rendering a layer of depth, mellowness and vivifying character to the cup. Ephemeral notes of moon flower come through in the aftertaste, making for a sublime experience. The second steep is just as flavorful; beams with vibrant, fruity attributes similar to raw mango and is best served iced for an incredible experience.
