Tea Review: Mist Forest (Bitaco)

Mist Forest
Bitaco
Type: Flavored Green
Origin: Colombia, La Cumbre
Product Description: Pear Guava is a graft of Guava and Pear which creates a bigger fruit with a citrus flavor and red flesh, vastly consumed in Colombia. Soursop, coming from Central and South America, is a fruit with white juicy flesh surrounding the seed with high vitamin C contents.

This Blend gives some acidity to our Green tea Bitaco® soft flavor with an exquisite Guava residue allowing a unique flavor experience.
.

Temperature: 195° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 2 minutes

The dry leaves are blended with pear guava and soursop and have a heady aroma of tropical fruit.

The infusion is pale yellow with an aroma of tropical fruit and a hint of something buttery.  The taste is tropical with pear and savory rice and a short finish.

The full flavor and aroma come through in the first infusion and does not carry into a second infusion.  I need to eat pear guava soon because the blend of tropical fruit and pear in the flavor and aroma were intriguing.  The savory rice-like taste was an unusual though not unwelcome surprise.
