Thanks to Dinosaura for this one!

I had a feeling I would like this, it looks very pretty and smells great in the bag. White tea and roses does seem very girly but I’m a chick so I guess it’s all okay. :)

I steeped this for approx. 2 minutes at around 180 F. The aroma of this one is very light and fresh and flowery. The rose was very light and flavorful in my cup, not too perfumey, it was nice. As it cooled off I did notice some bitterness and I wasn’t sure if I accidentally steeped it for too long or at too high a temp.

I did attempt a resteep at a lower temp. and I thought I got better results with the second go around. It’s too bad this is only available in the U.K. but I see that Zhi makes something similar. I’ve been known to put rose petals in my white tea and I buy those in bulk from the health food store. :) It is a nice combination for sure.

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable
