A bit of a shorter steeping. Interestingly, while the rose is lighter I can taste the black tea more; it has sort of nice, unobtrusive, toasty sort of flavour to it.

I’m making myself a pot to fortify myself for the last minute Christmas things I need to do. It’s gonna be a busy day.

I’m drinking this sweetened with a bit of wildflower honey right now. I don’t normally sweetened black teas (apart from chais) but the rose flavour is actually complimented quite nicely by a bit of honey-sweetness.

The rose is a touch too strong at this steeping temp and it’s almost all that I’m tasting right now.

Made a pot for myself and the boyfriend this morning, as we both stayed up until ridiculous hours studying for midterm exams.

Steeped for 4 min and added skim milk. I was afraid the rose would be overpowering with the extra steeping time but that wasn’t really the case (or maybe we were in too much of a rush to notice).

Steeped this morning for 2.5 minutes and it came out very nice with the rose not too overpowering.

Strong Assam, perfect for making homemade chai.

Intensely tart and fruity. Often make this an iced drink with a bit of honey to sweeten.

Rooibos scented with rose, currants, and blueberries. A nice flavoured rooibos.
