Rose is another one of those flavors that has to be perfectly right for me or else it can remind me of perfume and give me a headache. I have hopes that roses paired with something creamy will bring down the sometimes overwhelming contribution that roses can bring to a cup of tea. The blend is gorgeous! Lovely little rose buds and beautiful white tea leaves.

Sipping… mmm.. this is very nice. I definitely taste the white tea – it’s sweet and buttery. The roses are there, but they’re actually in the background as a floral wisp. The roses and the white tea are all wrapped up in a smooth, somewhat milky note. The finish does remind me a little bit of a bubbly champagne in that it makes your tongue tingle a little. This is a delicious tea that would be perfect for a special occasion. It’s also so mellow that it’s great for those times when you need something with just a hint of flavor.
