Probably shouldn’t be drinking another tea at this time, but oh well. I wanted to give it a try. At least I didn’t choose the Yunnan White Jasmine. Now that would’ve kept me up all night. That’ll wait for tomorrow to be sampled.
Anyway, this tea isn’t joking around when it says ‘rose.’ In fact, there’s probably around three teaspoons of tea in this 1oz pouch, haha. But it was sort of the point to be a blend, and laoshan black is very potent, so if you want to taste much of anything else it does kind of need to be toned down.
Anyway, this is very nice! For some people who found Laoshan black too roasty, and don’t mind a rosey floral taste, this may be a good alternative! The rose petals and the bergamot make this much sweeter and it’s not really roasty at all. You taste just enough of the laoshan black to get the chocolatey taste.
I’m not sure I’d order this again, but I’ll be able to to finish this no problem. I’d like it more if the laoshan black was a bit more prominent.
