serindipiteaobama44.jpgSerendipitea recently released a new blend to commemorate the inauguration of our 44th President, Barack Obama. Serendipitea's website states : "Commemorate this Historic 2009 Inauguration with a Tea toast for a Change. Enjoy a brisk, clear cup of straight-forward Kenyan Black blended with a taste of All-American Apple Pie & a hint of Hawaii (Apples, Mango & Cinnamon). To start out with, I am not a huge fan of fruit teas, and being that this tea's flavors are almost entirely fruity, I didn't set my expectations too high. Furthermore, I thought that this blend could potentially be a disaster trying to accomplish too much in 1 cup. However, I was pleasantly surprised by this tea. For me, the apple-cinnamon component was most prominent, with the mango providing a sweet background for the apples and cinnamon. I detected just the slightest indication of artificial flavor in this tea, but Serendipitea's website confirms that the only ingredients are apples, mango, cinnamon, and black tea. The physical appearance of the dry blend confirms that there are plenty of natural pieces of fruit and cinnamon bark present. The apples and mango provided enough sweetness that I was able to forgo adding any sugar. I drank my tea black, but I believe that just a splash of milk would have been a great addition to the tea, particularly if this was taken as a dessert tea. In all, I don't see myself drinking this on a daily basis, but I did find it to be a refreshing new blend of flavors, and would certainly not refuse a cup of this. I would definitely recommend Obama 44 Inauguration Blend to those that love apple teas and tropical fruit teas.
