The best English Rose teas I’ve had so far haven’t actually been English, and this one continues the trend. Even though it says “a hint of tropical fruit” has been added, there’s a hint of fruit, but there’s also just a hint of rose. Neither flavour is particularly bold or characteristic (if anything, the fruit might come out just a little more) as I’d usually expect from a rose tea. Brewing longer doesn’t make a difference either.
Well, it’s so-so, but it’s nothing interesting.
thankyouthankyou maisonlula for our awesome swap!
So far this is definitely my favorite of the bunch, oh my gosh.
The flavour is out of this world good! And strong!
My boy and I enjoyed it over the Christmas break with some cream and sugar to enhance the cream. The rhubarb is sweet, not tart like when you eat it. More like a sugar dipped rhubarb, my personal favorite.
The tea base is mild and isn’t bitter at all. Very pleasant and awesome quality!
I’m usually not a big fan of instant tea, but this one, stolen from my mother’s cupboard, is actually quite nice, and will probably be a hit in the summertime (if I can make it last that long, that is).
I’d advise against the three teaspoons of instant tea per serving as suggested in the can, though. Two teaspoons is enough, otherwise it’ll be way too sweet.
I don’t drink a lot of moroccan mint, because I don’t like gunpowder. That said, I did enjoy this tea: there’s a great balance between green tea and peppermint, you can clearly taste both without one overpowering the other. I don’t know if it was good enough to make me want more of this tea, though.
