This is a highly scented floral green tea that seems at home as an afternoon tea a little pick-me-up when the brain starts to get a little fuzzy.

For me the floral aromas seem to be competing with one another and it does come across as a very busy tea with a lot going on – if your like floral teas you’ll love this as floral aroma and taste is very pervasive – subtlety is not the name of the game here.

Although the rose is plentiful the jasmine seems to be the dominant scent and flavour reminding me far more of Green tea with jasmine than Green tea with rose. Being more of a rose lover I found myself wanting more in this area.

I’m not really a big fan of highly fragrant green teas and this tea hasn’t made a convert of me. Would recommend to floral green tea lovers but wouldn’t recommend as a starting point if you’re wanting to get into green tea as it’s very overpowering.
