Others have commented on the beauty of finding little pink rosebuds in the mix, and I was also happy to find these miniature beauties floating around among the long white tea leaves and tiny shards of coconut. Nice smell to the dry leaf – coconut is definitely there, and I find that such a strong smell that it’s hard for me to get at what else might be present.

I gave it 2 minutes at 180 degrees, and think that was just about right. I love coconut, so I don’t mind that the taste tends to take over. I’m not getting a whole lot of vanilla in the tea itself, or rose for that matter, but that’s perfectly okay with me. The roses should be there just because they look nice. Next time I make up a pot of this I’m going to try to suss out where the vanilla is hiding.

Bio

Grandma introduced me to tea as a kid (lipton with milk and sugar; a bit poured into the saucer to cool it down and then sipped from there), and I’ve never looked back. Still have a slight preference for teas that go well with milk (or even better, cream) and sugar, but since Grandma’s day I’ve branched out to appreciate green and white teas, rooibos and pu erh. Absolutely love Mariage Freres!
