WILD TANGERINE | OLD TREE WHITE
Heartwarming brew with notes of (no surprise) tangerine and fireweed; the complexity of this is progressively expressed through 8-10 steeps.
The first brew is very gentle, pleasant but fairly simple. By the third and fourth brews, additional flavours are discovered. After 8-10 brews, there is a lingering, sweet mouthfeel.
