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!
