The leaf has an abundance of golden tips. The liquor displays a yellow ring around the cup, signifying high levels of theaflavin, the compound in the tea leaf associated with flavor and health properties. The cup has layers of flavor notes ranging from plum and blackcurrant to caramel, malt, cacao and sandalwood.
