Aloe Serenity

ML Aloe Serenity Green Tea Tin

Description: ML Aloe Serenity green tea blends chinese green tea leaves with inulin, rose petals and calming aloe for an antioxidant-rich infusion that aids digestion.
Ingredients: Green tea, aloe vera (aloe vera, sugar, acidifier: citric acid), inulin powder, rose petals, natural flavors

Notes: Adding german rock sugar, 1 scoop, brought of floral flavors and smoothed the grassy flavor. 2 minutes seems the better time, although the package suggests 3 and we will have to try that next time. Speaking of the packaging the round Mighty Leaf tin should be avoided, I found it hard to grab without having the top decorative cover come off (not the actual lid keeping the leaves in), as you must grab the bottom to avoid this. Also the metal fitted top lid that keeps the tea leaves in was hard for me to open without spilling leaves. I recommend this tea as it was a great green tea, however don't get the decorative Mighty Leaf round tin.

Smell: floral, Aloe, and sweet vegetation
Flavor: soft green tea, a bit grassier on the 2 min brew
Body: light
Aftertaste: none
Liquor: mostly clear with a hint of green cloudy as it brewed longer

Rating: 2/3
