Tea Review: Dewata TGFOP (Chariteas)

Dewata TGFOP
Chariteas
Type:  Black
Origin:  Indonesia, West Java
Product Description:  A black tea from the Dewata Estate with hints of flowers and vanilla.

Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves have a spicy aroma with notes of nut shells, smoke, and fragrant wood.

The orange amber infusion has a mildly tart and sweet aroma of apricots and flowers with a pinch of brown sugar.  The taste is lightly tangy and fruity, reminiscent of papaya with a hint of bell pepper bite and a long fruity and floral finish.

The first cup provided the best results, while a second cup is very light and is still enjoyable.  I was pleasantly surprised by the lingering aftertaste of fresh tropical fruit.
