drank Versailles Rose by Nina's Paris
1717 tasting notes

Grapefruit without tartness! Enough rose to shave off the sharpness without adding perfume flavor. Nicely done, Nina’s!

How did you steep this? I’m still trying to figure out the best steep parameters for Nina’s teas.

Sloppily in a work microwave—water not quite boiling, maybe a 2 1/2 minute steep.

Sloppily – my favorite parameters.

Is there another way? ;)

I think, generally speaking, Nina likes a light touch both on time and temp.

Bio

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
