Always End Up Here, Beastly Beverages tea. Available from their Etsy Shop.

Rose Tea.

(Brewed in a drop-canister tea pot, four cup, for five minutes with freshly drawn boiled water. Served with milk, for I am a philistine)

My office smells of rose petals.

Usually, by this time of the afternoon, the office smells of pie, of curry, of subway sandwiches, of overbrewed coffee. Of fish and chips, or beef lasagne. Of whatever Wendel!s, with an integrated exclamation mark and a decent chef, is selling in the work-complex canteen today.

But today the office smells of rose petals, because I brought in Always End Up Here.

On the nose, on the tongue, on the throat and on the air, like an early tenth doctor episode the smell and taste of rose inflicts like a delicate and lacy battering ram, drowning any notes of the tea behind it, and leaving you without any doubt of the ingredients list, save maybe where it said Black Tea.

If you like rose petals, summers days, and the perfumed air of an english country garden, I’d recommend this tea. If you hate the smell of rose petals, you’re not going to get along.
