    • Nose
      Clear and profound Chinese medicine Shirley, Radix isatidis, Rehmannia glutinosa, fold ear root, old-fashioned Dona, high-year Medium Shirley;
      Acting closer to Zhongzheng's sweet rather than plum and other fruits, pasta sauce, hardened brown sugar, sweet embryo;
      The sour smell of the mud cellar, milk flakes, frozen coconut milk, hot limestone roasted by the sun, double skin milk, wax texture unique to kittens.
      Twenty minutes after the cup awoke, the alcoholic breath was still more irritating and somewhat spoiled the tasting experience.

      Try to drop three drops of distilled water, popping out the more obvious citrus flavor, lemon, fruit peel oil, grass, chrysanthemum fragrance;
      Then the nutty wind began to occupy the home, and the special warm smell of fried melon seeds, ginger powder, roasted hazelnuts, dough, roasted seeds, bread crumbs, five-spice powder and so on.
    • Taste
      High sweetness, Yuhua stone dumplings, white sesame paste, noodle sauce, milk jelly, boiled the soup base of Duoyuanxiao;
      The fruit flavor is extremely obvious, citrus, lemon, pineapple, melon, sweet orange, mango, apple, pomegranate, kumquat, strawberry, peach, jasmine, chrysanthemum, high sweet and low acid;
      Slightly beeswax with milk, salt, pepper, spicy, smoke residue, some more irritating Thai spice powder, plant stems and leaves, almond powder.
    • Finish
      Long, slightly bitter, beeswax, salt and pepper, birch wood, burning sensation.
