To be perfectly honest, I’m not even sure this is the right tea. I found it at a local cafe that had made up little samples of loose tea for stocking stuffers. All it came with was a label for “Rose Congou.” I looked up teas companies that the store carried and this one was the only that matched.
Onto the tasting note…
I have finally figured out what a “floral” note means. And this did smell like roses. I thought that was going to be a problem, but on the whole, it was actually good. The black tea seemed to be lighter with the rose in it. I’m tempted to try it with some sugar on the next cup.
All in all, pretty good for a mystery sample!
