Thanks to SimplyJenW for sending some of this my way! Usually I enjoy roses in tea so I thought I would try this…

Wow, this smells so nice when it’s steeping and so does the finished cup. I am having a bad morning (already) and the aroma is very soothing. I don’t know that much about congous so it’s a bit difficult to determine what role it is playing here. The tea itself is a medium bodied black tea with a hint of sweetness and some chocolate/spice. I sipped on some of it plain but then I also added soymilk and I liked it both ways. This is going on my list of things to purchase from Upton the next time I place an order. This tea is VERY rosey so if you don’t like that I’d steer clear of it for sure. For me it’s so very nice, a small luxury in the day.

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

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it
