I should have realized I wouldn’t have liked this once I saw the whole rosebuds in this tea. The rose flavor came through extremely strong and overwhelmed everything else. This tea tastes like soap to me, way too perfumy.

Maybe the teaspoon scooped up too many rosebuds. I’m looking at the infuser and I see five buds, which is probably four too many for my taste. I’ll try this again with a better rose to tea ratio.

Bio

I’m a tea-aholic. I’ve always loved tea. It is soothing and warm and comforting. I always had it when we went out to eat as a child so my first association is with rich and delicious food.

As an adult, I’m learning to enjoy tea on its own merits, and bask in its subtleties and varieties. The ritual of making a cup of tea is instantly relaxing.

I prefer oolong and white teas, followed by greens, and then blacks. For the most part I do not like flavored or blended teas, and I never add sugar or cream to tea from the actual tea plant.

I’m slowly learning to appreciate rooibos blends, which I drink for its anti-inflammatory properties.
