    Marked by notes of peach, hint of apricot, cantaloupe complemented by tones of wood spice

    appearance

    Orange-Amber

    taste

    A medium-bodied, well-rounded cup which starts with a nice, stone-fruity texture; redolent of peach and fresh apricot gradually growing into prominence and defines the central theme of the liquor. Muted accents of cantaloupe joined with mellow accents of wood spice shore up around the edges, adding a layer of depth and radiant character to the liquor. Subtle nutty tinctures are discernible towards the end which however ebb to finish on softer floral intonations, making for a distinctive experience of Summer clonal teas from the verdant hills of Darjeeling.
