No. 20, Kikuya
Beguiling hand-crafted blend of organic Japanese sencha and the essence of Bulgarian rose strewn with rose petals. Named in honor of the first geisha, Kikuya retains an air of elegance and mystery. The emerald leaves of Sencha, delicate with prominent oceanic and grassy notes, balance beautifully with the voluptuous scent of rose. The resulting pale jade liquor is at once fragrant and refreshing with a long blissful finish.
