    taste

    A light-bodied, smooth cup beaming with floral-fruity attributes. Soft-floral tones envelop the palate right at the start which gradually subside to reveal a heart resonating with delectable fruity flavors, akin to muskmelon and raw mango. Fresh-green accents are discernible around the edges which however ebb to finish on sweet-grapey notes, making for a distinguished experience of Spring Moonlights from the verdant hills of Darjeeling. The second steep recommended at 3 mins brings forth lush citrusy flavors with furtive accents of peach and is recommended with ice for a memorable experience.
