The afternoon cuppa. Post presentation and time to relax!

I like rose scented and flavored things so I was excited to check out this sample. It is very strongly scented when you open the bag and you can see some rose petals mixed in with the tea.

It’s a blend of ceylon and keemun and brews up to be a very dark orange. woooow, this is so relaxing and nice! I love the way it smells and the tea itself is very smooth and rich. I don’t sense a lot of bitterness or astringency in here. I usually drink a lot of black teas with soymilk but it seemed such a shame to add anything to this. It is very nice to just sip on plain.

Rose is supposed to be an anti-depressant. Regardless, I think this tea is wonderful if you’re into rose. I think I liked it better than the Upton rose congou.

Sad that I did not get a whole tin of this but perhaps I will when I am ordering some other things from them. I feel like I just got back from a trip to the spa!

Amy, what did you like better about this one?

I think I just liked the black tea base better, felt the rose stood up to the ceylon/keemun base. It IS strong though.

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
