Blind Assessment: Rich-toned, sweetly savory. Grape candy, salted chocolate, almond, gardenia, sandalwood in aroma and cup. Savory-leaning structure with gentle acidity; syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. Salted chocolate and gardenia notes lead in the long finish, supported by sandalwood.
Notes: Produced in the Valley of Tears region of Taiwan entirely of the Typica variety of Arabica and processed by the honey anaerobic (limited oxygen ferment) method.

The Bottom Line: A savory, pleasantly salty, chocolate-driven Taiwan cup, experimentally processed using anaerobic fermentation.
