This is the second time I’ve tried this tea. The first time was before I joined Steepster and was in no way a success! The first time, I used an artificial sweetner and it brought out the taste of the rose petals to the point where the tea was just about undrinkable. This time, I tasted the tea unsweetener first. I still didn’t like it, but it was better. I added a few drops of liquid vanilla stevia, and decided it would do. It’s not a tea I’ll be reordering. It’s got too much rose for my tastes.
