Review and Tasting
Sampled on 24/02/2013
Clear, dark yellowy green.
Earthy green tea with subtle minty freshness and notes of oily Plasticine.
This liqueur looks and tastes natural with a good balance between sweetness and the bitter tannins of the tea, the flavours of which mingles well with subtle hints of lemon grass and fragrant honeydew melon.
Tea flavours fade quickly to leave lingering earthy mint.
