Golden Wheat is closest to Robert Oster Caffe Crema, but I really don’t have a good match. Click here to see the Taccia inks together.

Longer writing:

 I used a medium Pelikan M400 White Tortoise on Tomoe River 68gsm. The ink had a wet flow.

Overall, I really love the color and shading this ink has. It’s beautiful, I’m adding a full bottle to my wish list.
