    An immensely aromatic, smooth cup offering a flowery-sweet signature of Asiatic lilies and fuchsia peonies joined with delectable tropical fruity undertones. The floral notes are long and hum along throughout the length, which mingles with fruity resonances of delectable white peach and green mango around the middle and the back rendering a rich, vivacious texture to the cup. Subte fresh-green accents shore up towards the end which however ebb to finish on slightly sweet, grape-like flavors, making for a sublime finish. The second steep recommended at 4 minutes is equally enjoyable, beams with radiant flavors of raw mango and is recommended with ice for an enthralling experience.
