drank Rose Scented by Harney & Sons
358 tasting notes

I have a ton of Harney’s samples to get through, and this is the first. I love rose teas, so I knew this one had to be on my try list to see if I need to purchase a tin. This one smells wonderful, like walking through a rose garden in full bloom. The tea tastes nice and light – not too strong of a black tea and not too heavy on the rose. It’s perfectly balanced, like almost all of Harney’s teas are. I’m really enjoying this cup this morning. Definitely will be getting a tin!

-Dry blend has medium black tea leaves and twigs with pink and yellow rose petals.
-Dry leaves smell like perfumey rose. Tea liquor aroma is of black tea with a hint of rose.
-Tea liquor is a clear medium orange brown color.
-Light black tea and rose flavor and finish. Light floral aftertaste.
-Best with sweetener. Milk optional.
-Excellent tea. A lightly flavored rose cup.

Bio

Just a Southern girl who loves sunshine, little dogs and all things tea!

I love animals and animal rescue. We have a rescued Chihuahua, Greyhound, Siamese and 2 Tabbies. We also foster kittens for the local humane society.

My favorite teas are sweet and malty black teas but I try to branch out and taste them all. :)
