description

A rare second flush oolong that is immensely smooth and refreshingly aromatic. Floral-fruity intonations abound in this summer cup with exquisite notes of amaryllis and jasmine rousing the senses with the first sip. These subtle hints grow and paint a sweet, fragrant hue to the liquor and give way to brighter, sharp flavors of raw mango. This adds a liveliness to the cup and gives it a citrusy texture. Sweetness of honeysuckle rounds up the cup beautifully in the end and stays on for a longer aftertaste.
