I used to dislike hazelnut. I gave away any and all Ferrero Rocher chocolates given to me. Then I had Florence. At first I liked it a little, then a lot, then I started craving it. I thought it would be a great tea for the Rose Scented addition experiments. I think I like this! I used three teaspoons of Florence and one teaspoon of Rose Scented. You might think those proportions wouldn’t have much impact, but it really does change the flavor. Florence has deep, dark flavors to me, and the addition of that small amount of rose really brightens it. I drank it both with and without milk and sugar, and it was equally good both ways.

Oh that sounds yum! I’ve not tried H&S’s Rose – is it a strong rose scent/flavour?

But you gave away Ferrero Rocher’s arrrgh!! lol no I just say that as both my ex hubby and my teenage daughter gave/give them to me every birthday and Christmas (and I gobble them up one after the other because I just can’t resist) :P

It is a strong rose in my opinion, but very good. I do like it by itself very much, but I really love it as an addition to other tea. The only other rose tea I have had is Rose Congou from Upton. It is also good, with a very different base that is a bit more assertive than this one, I think.

Definitely sounds like something I’d enjoy then .. The only Rose I’ve had so far is China Rose from a NZ shop tleafT, and it’s a real delicate one, but I very much enjoy it!

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.

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