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!
