Tea Review: Eros (Tealeaves)

Type: Flavored Black
Origin: Sri Lanka
Product Description: Sweet Mandarin orange and warm vanilla passionately embrace Ceylon black tealeaves in this sensory delight named after the Greek God of love and beauty, giving you that warm feeling in every sip.

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

The dry leaves have an aroma of orange and vanilla.

The bright red infusion has an aroma of sweet vanilla and orange with a taste that reminds me of orange sherbert (ice cream) with mild astringency and a long finish.

The aroma was curiously mild and yet this tea was flavorful with the taste of orange and vanilla right in front.  It felt a bit like drinking dessert without the dietary repercussions.  Though the full flavor is in the first cup, a second infusion still holds a surprising amount of flavor.

This tea was received as a gift from a third party.
