NOTES:
Eyeballs in a sparkling-clear manner; a nice rich amber-hued liquor. Nose is a quite bit of honey w/  refreshing spice bracing. Sips in the same manner; malty & peppery. Fresh & briskly-so. Purposeful. Excellent tannic dry quality on the slurp. A bit of citrus rind is added there.

Fantastic body, clean and sweet-spicy citrus. A superbly balanced and well-rounded cup. Quite nuanced. Finish sees the orange turn lemony. Lacking in complexities somewhat & by design -- straightforward.

Attainable and pleasant w/ a nice kindly kick. A can't miss tea for fill-in-the-blank occasions; short of seeking the exotic. Quite familiar.

FINAL GRADE: A-
A 90-100 B 80-89 C 70-79 D 60-69 F 0-59
