Peach and cherry create elegance when combined with the lemongrass/green tea notes of this washed gesha. Mouthfeel is silky yet structured and dense, layering flavors ontop of each other while maintaining clarity and articulation. Citrus holds the balance, ever-present in the background, while letting the panela sweetness drive the cup.
