NOTES:
Brick red highlights & cloudiness sinking to the bottom of my mason jar/glass. Evens to a matte finish of good clarity. Heavy vanilla bean note up-front in nice balance. A bit of black tea astringency then. 

Finishes in a dew heavy juicy tropical floral. Slurping complexities up-top are a cocoa accompaniment with its own caramel lilt. A good bit of appropriate spices hit the tea. Some toasted nuttiness ebbs & flows. Quite heavily nuanced. Very earthen after finish before next sip.

"Oh, this is an A," I said to myself alone in my living room & upon the first sip. Sometimes the best offering lends to the shortest review. Advice? Experience this cup for yourself.

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