drank Rose Tea by Golden Moon Tea
1329 tasting notes

Thank you for sharing this with me… Azzrian?
I try, but I am terrible at keeping my sample piles separate. Not enough room and somehow they get all mixed up! ack!
Anyhow, this was a lovely tea. Similar to a rose congou, but the base is a bit different. Not as harsh I’d say. In fact, I found it rather smooth. and very rosy. More than I was expecting.
This I think, is the most memorable rose tea I’ve tried.
There are so many rose teas in my tasting history by now that they are more or less all the same. If I did a side by side comparison, I’m sure I could find differences but they are pretty miniscule.
I’d like to see a variation of a rose tea one day. Chocolate rose maybe? oooh, perhaps this is a mixing opp! :P

I used to have a chocolate rose tea, but it wasn’t a strong rose flavor … the rose was more for appearance than for a strong flavor presence… HOWEVER… around valentines day, Culinary Teas has an AWESOME chocolate rose tea… it’s really really good… definitely keep your eye out for that one.

Doesn’t Harney and Sins have a chocolate rose tea called Valentine’s Blend? I love their Rose Scented Black. I think I tried mixing it with their Chocolate. I need to try it again!

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
