3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
6oz clear glass bottle pours deep gold with copper hues. The aroma has earthy tea goodness, some apricot notes and some floral and tropical notes too. The taste is here and there and everywhere with smooth silky sweet honey sweetness, apricot and mango fruitiness rimmed thinly with a floral sort of a kick. Behind those notes is a nice mild earthy tea sensation pulling this whole thing together. Lovely.

Pours a goldish brown. Aroma is big on tea, orange, peach and mango. Black tea stands out in the flavor. Tropical for sure. Wonderful peach, mango, and papaya. Light pineapple and citrus. Herbal, sweet, tropical....great.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2013 Bottle with Allen and Pat, compliments of Allen on 4th of July. Pours a slightly cleanish golden color, not much head or lace to note. Aromas of peach guts, mango, juicy honey, pineapple, and green tea. Taste is peach nectar, apricot, mango, wood, cinnamon, vanilla, and the same green tea aftertaste that was present in the aroma. Maybe the best mead I have tried to date.
