Yeah today is pretty much all Traveling Tea Box (group A) samples. I’ll try pretty much any tea that lists rose as a primary note, so this one came out.
It certainly smells rosey, in a way that I love. Sometimes rose + fruit ends up smelling like cookies to me. I don’t know why, but I’ve come across it a few times now, and it seems to be a peculiarity of my nose/taste buds. Whatever, it’s awesome for me!
Woah the rose flavor in this is intense. It isn’t quite soapy or perfumy to me, but it is walking that line so those with less rose inclinations would likely find it that way. I am surprised at how much more intense the flavor is than the aroma. There is that slight cookie taste to me, but I get no fruit from this. Decently tasty, but I’m not sure it does exactly what it says.
