Made for me at a DavidsTea store. Steeped 3 minutes. Drunk bare.’

You’ve got to seriously like floral teas, and especially, like the scent of roses, to enjoy this tea.

Luckily, I was right in the mood.

A good balance of rose and a mild China green. By the end of the cup, I got more roses than tea.

I expect a 3-minute steep is as much as this tea can tolerate. There was a slight soapiness to the rose by the end.

It tastes of green tea and roses. A bit perfumey. Might be better enjoyed 125mL at a time, versus 250mL or more.

Writer and tea fiend. Author of DELUDED YOUR SAILORS, SKY WAVES, DOUBLE-BLIND, and THE SHADOW SIDE OF GRACE. New novel this March called THIS MARLOWE.

I prefer straight teas but will try almost anything … so long as it’s not tainted with hibiscus. I loathe hibiscus.

Floral oolong and complex black teas are my favourites.
