Pleasing hints of cotton candy come wafting up from the cup and then finishes with sweetish herbal tones laced with chocolate in the aroma. Once you start to taste and enjoy your first sips you find fermented fruit and honey cake. It has a wonderful mild to medium acidity which gives it the perfect syrupy mouth feel and heavy body. A very nice, smooth and complex cup for anytime of the day.
