drank Palace of Roses by Gurman's
1813 tasting notes

This was one of my Christmas gifts that eldest daughter picked up in Dublin. Oh. My. Gosh. I have to say it was amazing. I get rich, rich apricot and raisin mostly, with a little mango. This is full bodied and so flavorful. Fantastic! Taken plain, and served at tea time with homemade lemon pepper crackers and cranberry White Stilton cheese.

Sounds awesome.

Even your snicky-snacks sound elegant. You’ve got more refinement in your little pinky than I do in … well, most of my other body parts :)

Actually, Ysaurella! there ARE roses! I just mentioned the flavors that stood out to me but the pretty Rose petals are there.

Gmathis: if you only see me stumping out to the coop in my big fuzzy red robe wearing baby blue socks and brown clog sneakers at 7 am, you may rethink the term “elegant” for me! LOL!
Ysaurella: I will try this again and pay careful attention to the rose. It was not the predominant flavor for me yesterday, but it may have been distraction or the food pairing that affected my perception of the taste.

I will see that red robe and raise you a purple fleece one with tweed wool hunting socks and lumpy black slippers.

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about four years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.
