This was one of the samples with my last order. I would have likely not tried this for a long time because I learned I’m not so much into floral teas after trying Strawberry Rose Champagne from Teavana a while back. However, they have this one as their web special sales and I had to try it to see if it’s worth buying 250 grams of it.
It really is a good tea if you like floral. Oh my god, is it ever floral. I taste no green tea, which is fine, it’s a good base for this, allows the rose to really come forth. I feel like I’m chewing rose petals. I haven’t added any sugar, this is one of those teas I can drink without, I don’t even crave it in here, it would probably make it megarose.
A 3 minute steep gives off a very fragrant brew. Flavour is exactly what you smell. Rose. It is not unpleasant but it is very much there. It has a very long aftertaste also. I used the entire sample and it’s given me 16 oz, more with resteep although I don’t think I resteep this one.
Will not rate as it is a good tea, just not for me. If you do like floral or rose teas, DAVIDs has this on special right now. They’re practically giving it away :)
