    A pleasantly brisk, medium-bodied cup which starts with a vibrant green texture interlaced with notes of unripe tree fruit. These flavors resonate throughout the entire length and define the character of the cup. Delectable notes of mangosteen are discernible around the edges which ebb to reveal fleeting nutty nuances towards the finish. Mild green tones similar to dried figs can be picked up in the aftertaste, making for a memorable experience of Chinary black tea this Spring.
