Tea Review: Andean Princess (Bitaco)

Andean Princess
Type: Flavored Black
Origin: Colombia, La Cumbre
Product Description: Black Tea Bitaco®, Isabella Grape Skin and Andean Raspberry

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

The dry leaves have an aroma of raspberries, grapes, cocoa, and fragrant wood.

The red-orange infusion has an aroma of warm rye bread, berries, grapes, and malt.  The taste is malty with a hint of grape and wood, similar to oak cask.  

One infusion is best with this tea.  The berry and grape flavor was surprisingly light, though this may also be a sign that no artificial flavors were added.  

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