description

Light-bodied and smooth, these silver tipped leaves truly live up to their name. The liquor feels soft on the palate with tender floral notes, kind of like Asiatic lilies and citrus blossoms. These flavors grow and run through the cup. Hints of lush fruitiness of peaches and cantaloupes come around giving depth to the liquor. It turns mellow and some raw fruity tones also appear which wane and make way for a fragrant finish of fuchsia peonies. Steep it a second time to enjoy it more with bright notes of green apple and calisson.

Marked by notes of grilled greens, smoky, fresh legumes, starch with roasted hints at the back

Light green
taste:
The liquor is soft, has a distinct umami character to it and starts with clean note of smoky greens greeting the palate which gradually grows big as you make your way into the cup. Soft notes of cooked veggies interlaced with a furtive marine note can be perceived towards the back which adds an element of astringency to the cup. There is an underlying briskness which flows throughout giving it a rounded edge. A subtle sweetness can be picked up in the aftertaste.
