Tea Review: Java White Tips (Chariteas)

Java White Tips
Type: Black
Origin: Indonesia
Product Description: This black tea features silver downy tips and is bold with a hint of sweetness.  It is perfect for hot or iced tea and as a blending ingredient.

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

The dry leaves have an aroma of fragrant wood and flowers.

The bright red infusion has a sweet and tangy aroma with notes of green vine and grilled vegetables.  The taste is bold and astringent, almost tart, with a long finish.

Everything goes into the first infusion, so there's no need to re-steep.  It would be interesting to pair this different foods, to see what flavors it can bring out and enhance.

This tea was provided as a free sample without guarantee of a review.
