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.
