drank Rose Scented by Harney & Sons
773 tasting notes

The dry tea has small pink rose petals mixed throughout. Looks very romantic.

The dry tea and the tea liquor both have a strong smell of rose perfume. It is very pleasant. Reminds me of a traditional english tea room/house. And also of my grandmas house.

The steeped tea tastes very strong of rose perfume. There is a very faint sweetness to the tea, the same as you get if you use real rose petals. I find the rose flavour a little overpowering for my taste. I feel like I have very fresh rosey breath after drinking this tea.

When searching this tea I noted that many of Harney’s teas can be custom to add a rose scent. I think I would like to try this blended with an Earl Grey. I am glad I only got the sample size of this.

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.
