My afternoon cuppa. I just drained it…need to brew another, immediately! This tea really surprised me. I am not a lover of rose scents in general, but this tea is wonderful and relaxing. You do catch the rose scent when opening the bag, but brewed up, it perfectly complements this particular black base. I am bummed I only bought 2 oz…….

That sounds REALLY nice. Are there any other teas that you like from the Tea Table?

I like their Chocolate Mint Decaf as it is difficult to find a good chocolate decaf. Their Lychee Congou is on my list to buy next time. They also carry several of the Metropolitan Tea varieties. I need to get some tasting notes in here on these things. And I love that they will send three free samples with every order.

Thanks! I have been looking for a Rose tea with a Chinese base, so I am so excited to hear about this one! I also love decafs for the evening and will try that chocolate mint – sounds so good. I’ll be avidly watching your tasting notes for more reviews!

My motto: Drink the good tea!

Tea enthusiast, trying to keep up my cardio for the zombie apocalypse. I have come to accept that I am a western brewing black tea drinker as that is where my ‘tea heart’ lies. I started on loose leaf as a way to have my dessert and not suffer the caloric issues. Once I tried it, I was hooked.

I drink what I like, which is mostly China blacks, a few traditionally scented blacks and Earl Greys, plus a flavored tea here and there. I don’t mind spending a bit on premium varieties on occasion, but an expensive tea has to deliver. My favorite places to order are Harney & Sons and Upton Tea Imports. TeaVivre is great for Chinese tea.

My ratings are pretty subjective. If it falls under 70, I may not take the time to post about it unless I had something specific to say. If it is 70-80 I like it, but I will probably not rebuy. Favorites are over 80 and up, but sometimes the less expensive or more easily obtainable version of a similar taste will win out for my cupboard space.

Usual teapot steeping method: 24 oz teapot, 3 perfect scoops of tea (4 1/2 actual tsp), freshly boiled water, 4 minutes. Lightly sweetened.

Usual mug steeping method: 15 oz mug, 1.5 perfect scoops of tea (just over 2 actual tsp), freshly boiled water, 4 minutes. Lightly sweetened.

Usual pan method: 1 1/2 cups water, 2 perfect tsp chai (3 actual tsp). Simmer for 3 minutes. Add 2/3 cup skim milk. Simmer for 2 more minutes. Strain and sweeten.

Usual pitcher method:
5 or 6 Perfect Spoons of tea (this means about 7-9 actual tsp), freshly boiled water, brewed essentially double-strong in my 24 oz teapot for 4 minutes. Fill my Fiestaware Disc pitcher (about 60 oz.) halfway with ice. Add brewed double-strong tea to the pitcher. Stir it a little and enjoy. No additions.
