Drinking this today as I’m feeling pretty drained, rough night with the toddler not wanting to sleep in his own bed and the husband insisting he did. I must preface this by saying that I haven’t had rose in too many teas and the ones that I have were mostly Victorian tea room type blends. So when the rose came through prominently on the first steep I was a bit confused. Why does this Verdant spa blend taste all Victorian? Sweet, floral, soothing and tasty, but I still have the Victorian connotation. The second infusion I did western style, which may be more effective anyway, and the ginger and tulsi came through more.
I couldn’t resist adding Laoshan Black to the third infusion after reading Bonnie’s tasting note. Mmm chocolaty… reminds me of a zestier version of Bergamot Rose Laoshan Black. Would probably do green when sick but today I need the energy. Yum!
