Tea Review: Genesis (SerendipiTea)

Advent Tea Calendar Day 4
Type:  Flavored Green
Origin:  China
Product Description:  The apple is viewed in certain cultures as an offering of hospitality, the mango seen as a fruit of virility & Organic green tea is known for health. A winning recipe.

Temperature:  175° F
Amount:  3 grams
Steeping Time:  3 minutes

The dry leaves are blended with apple, mango, hibiscus, and rose hips.

The infusion has the color of pink grapefruit.  The aroma is fruity, as expected, with sweet apple, floral, and berry notes.  The flavor is fruity and a little tart with very little sweetness.

This tea was most flavorful and well-balanced with a refreshing, light finish.  The flavors really came out at 175° F, though I enjoyed the milder, less tart results at 195° F.
