drank Rose Scented by Harney & Sons
1876 tasting notes

Taking a cue from JacquelineM, we prepared this one today with 3 parts Rose Scented to 1 part Keemun Mao Feng. It was delicious, it was lovely, it was sweet! I could not tell a big difference from how it tasted when steeping just Rose Scented by itself, so I think I may try it again with a 1/1 ratio. The experimenting is fun, but I do also love this one just as it is. Today I noticed more of the spicy-peppery rose scent than I did before, and perhaps it was the addition of Mao Feng that brought that out for me. We took it sans additions – this is sweet and smooth.

Comparing the Rose Congou with this, I would say Rose Congou is slightly bolder (but not brash!) and maybe has a tiny touch of astringency, but a good kind that lets you know you are drinking TEA! They are both great teas. I agree with JacquelineM, there is a place for both in the cupboard!

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about five 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 and oolongs.

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

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
