Blind Assessment: Quietly rich, distinctive. Brisk notes of fine black tea and fresh-cut cedar balanced by considerable sweetness: honeysuckle, ripe apricot, vanilla. Crisp, pleasantly bittersweet acidity; light, silky mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates but lasts in a gently drying finish.
Notes: Produced from trees of the rare (and expensive) Ethiopia-derived botanical variety Gesha (also spelled Geisha). Las Margaritas Gesha was produced without the use of pesticides, herbicides or synthetic fertilizers.

Who Should Drink It: The unusual juxtaposition of brisk, cedary black tea notes with lush ripe fruit and floral sweetness is original and attractive.
