A newcomer given to us by a friend in Northern Germany a couple of years ago. He said, "Tallinn is the most gorgeous, and largest marbled purple stripe we have here in Europe. It's amazing and you simply must have some!" So far, it's proving itself to us. We only have a little to sell, but will hopefully increase our inventory over time.
