No Tamil Tiger, just chocolate delicately embroidered right onto the gnostic 6th chakra (3rd eye). Full of intuitive & illusory flavors; like trying to clutch a shadow or lick the hole of a donut.

Flavor 43 / 50
rough intro on chocolate woad -> quickly straightens up fresh young coconut cream -> spiced with cassia leading to Sri Lankan wattalapam -> citric sparkle of black Ceylon tea steaming at very high, rarefied altitudes, right up there around Nuwara Eliya -> vapors of hibiscus (especially its rhubarb component) & vanishing jujube-type tamarind -> goes south like the down of a duck in winter... breadfruit creating illusion of local breakfast favorite - ‘milk hoppers’ pancakes
Quality 17.3 / 20
Butter smoothly mediates smoke-drying technique & firm roast for archaic Asian accents in this Criollo-leaning bean.
