I have to preface this note by saying I love wine. I also love tea. So the fact that there is a tea that tastes like wine – right up my alley.

On first smell, the tea leaves smell like a sweet rose wine (not rose like the flower, rose the wine, with the little dash over the “e”, I don’t know how to do that on the keyboard).

The tea brews light yellow colour and smells of sweet white tea and roses (the flower this time). The tea tastes like a sweeter version of a Californian cabernet sauvignon. Delicious. I would love to try this tea iced.

There is a slight astringent aftertaste that I often get with flowery teas.

Profile

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
