생각보다 맛이 아주 달콤하지는 않아요.

F&M의 로얄블랜딩을 드셔보셨다면, 그때 느끼셨을 복합적인 향 속에서 베이스향? 어떤 쿰쿰하고 나무향 같은 것이 있다는 것을 아실텐데요. 그런 향이 나는 차라고 생각하시면 되겠습니다. 정산소총에서 딱 훈연향이 빠진 차입니다. 향도 깊고 맛도 깊은 차입니다. 그리고 카페인 함유량이 꽤 높은 것 같네요.

본색(本色) 이랑 원정(元正) 특급 정산소종 을 추천 드립 니다 ~~요 두종 차 는 고객님 이 원하시는 전통적인 깊은 훈연향 입니다~~ 이제야 답장 드려서 죄송 하고 답이 도움 되셨으면 좋겠음니다~~
