Rose buds work quite well with blends, especially – as I’ve found – with white teas. Rose petal whites are awesome! But I digress. By themselves, rose buds are like lemongrass, they don’t work well alone. They need others to help ‘em shine. By themselves, they still contribute to a light, subtle, festively floral cup with a very “clean” taste, but they need a pedestal on which to stand. Such was the case here. These were absolutely beautiful looking; excellent smelling, too, both as dry and in liquor form. Can’t wait to try it with a Silver Needle sometime.

I moonlight as a procrastinating writer and daylight as a trader of jack. I appreciate good tea, good beer, and food that is bad for me. Someday I’ll write the great American novel. And it’ll probably have something to do with tea or beer…or both. In the meantime, I subsist.
