Balance

It's all about

a balanced cup. The charcoal notes don’t obscure the other aromas nor add any bitterness. A lingering aftertaste evolves through an initial oily texture to a pleasant, light astringency. At the same time, tart fruit notes emerge from sweetness. And this one steeps and steeps without becoming bland (or leaving nothing but the charcoal taste)!
