- August Uncommon
The climate of the Cuban coast is gripping. The scent of tobacco and sweet tropical flowers hangs heavy in the air. The aroma of this tea envelops you with warm tobacco notes and cocoa-scented orchid. As you sip, the earthy aroma yields to juicy, sun-ripened pineapple. It finishes on a deep peppery note. A touch of milk mellows its spiciness and brings out the floral sweetness of pineapple. This is a place where everything conspires to make time pass in slowness, enchanted with nostalgia.
