    aroma

    Marked by note of nectarines, wet wood, Mirabelle plum with light musky accents

    Dark Amber

    taste

    A medium-bodied, brisk cup which opens on a delectable note of nectarines joined with exquisite tones of Mirabelle plum, which gradually gains strength as you make your way through the liquor. Muted nutty accents shore up around the edges which gradually ebb to reveal furtive notes of cedar towards the finish; thereby adding to the soiree of flavors and adding greater depth to the cup. Light musky accents linger on in the aftertaste, making for a distinguished experience from this renowned tea plantation.
