This golden elixir is bursting with papaya, mango, and flo-ral aromas. The tea is the star of the complex sweet start-ing mead that finishes with a dry lingering tannin.

Nip sized bottle. Poured a golden color with no head. Nice black tea with fruitiness.

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.

Dark gold pour. Loads of tropical fruit, spices, tea, hints of dark honey. A really cool mead. As always, a big thanks to ibrew2or3 for a great Kuhn hookup!

Bottle thanks to FlandersNed. Pours orange gold. Nose/taste of black tea, tropical fruit, mango, honey and vanilla. Taste is mostly black tea with hints of other notes. Very dry tea finish. Medium body.

Poured from bottle. Pours still, as usual, with loads of tea, passion fruit and floral aromas...maybe plumeria. Very dry.

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.

PhillyCraft (5847) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2012
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.
