I have to confess I went to David’s today for the sole purpose of trying this tea. And taking a breather from work at lunch. And checking out the construction at Queen West and Spadina. So I guess English Rose wasn’t the sole purpose of my trip, but I digress.
I tried this tea iced as the “Tea of the day” and sadly, it left me underwhelmed. I’m not really partial to flowery teas, but I don’t mind them. Rose blends, however, tend to be overwhelmingly rosy. And this one definitely veers in that direction. I was hoping I’d be able to taste the black tea or the sweetness from the alleged chocolate that’s in there, but no. Nothing. Just rose. I guess this would be a great tea for someone who really likes rose. It’s just not for me.
