description

The distant estate of Samabeong produces some rare and commendable teas that are cherished the world over. This specialty black is aromatic with light and smooth body. Its length is defined by clean floral notes of white orchids and peonies. The cup becomes lively around the edges with the intermittent play of sweet fruity flavors, which also add an admirable depth to the cup. The finish is that of nutty sweetness mixed with candied white pears.

taste

The liquor is light-bodied, smooth, quite aromatic and tastes fresh. A long and clean floral length, similar to white orchids and peony blossom defines the flavor profile of the cup. These flavors radiate throughout; briefly interrupted by sweet fruity undertones which can be perceived around the edges; adding more vivacity and depth to the liquor. The finish, powdery and persistent, evoke notes of pink pralines and candied white pears.
