drank Rose Tea by Golden Moon Tea
1112 tasting notes

I am sipping, and having a conversation with myself:

“This is good!”

“No, this is strange!”
“No, it’s good-strange.”
“No. Honey Pear is good-strange, this is strange-strange!”
“Hmmm. I’m kinda getting you on the strange-strange, and now that I think of it, doesn’t it taste EXACTLY like Rose Milk body lotion from the 1970s!!?!?!?!”

OMG it DOES!”

I then promptly stopped talking to myself, threw the tea down the sink, and am about to choose something COMPLETELY different for my evening tea!!!

Ricky – that’s the funny thing – I usually love flowery teas! I think this one tasted like tea roses to me and I find them too much. Even in perfumes I don’t like them and I do not grow any.

Lauren – lol! I don’t even want to think about how much lipstick I have ingested yet alone face cream! Yuck but MAC doesn’t taste half bad if you like vanilla ;)

Ricky

Water it down =] Drown those poor rose leaves. Get them in a fight with Jackie and then they’ll taste bruised and defeated.

LOL I love it. I’ll pass on the tea but love the post. Glad to see you recovered.

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
