    taste

    A light-bodied, smooth cup which beams with radiant floral characters. The palate is filled with an aromatic suppleness with fresh, caressing accents of white orchids and hyacinths coating the palate right at the start and humming along throughout the length of the liquor. Luscious fruity undertones, redolent of honeydew melon interlaced with hints of greens shore up around the edges, rendering a layer of depth and brisk intensity to the cup. Easing towards the end; enchanting tones of frangipani come through which lingers on ,making for a sublime experience. The second steep recommended at 4 minutes is just as flavorful and beams with lively, fruity flavors of vine peach and is best served iced for an exhilarating experience.
