This is the first rose tea I’ve ever had that actually TASTES like rose. When you put your nose over the edge of the cup in the process of taking a sip, you smell rose. OOLONG is an excellent choice as a delicate and ridiculously expensive essence like rose should be paired with a delicate tea that will complement and not overpower it. That shows a profound understanding by the Artist who blended this.

The teas with rose that I have tried up to now have all just had a few petals thrown into black tea. They get swallowed up in the blackness !

This is a stunningly beautiful, delicately nuanced tea blend. It calls to mind lace on a wedding dress, or wings on a butterfly… I could wax poetic over this tea.

Oh Stacy is going to LOVE your review! She is Artistic! I’ve always liked this…so girly.

This tea has me thinking that I need to keep a large jar of it as a pantry staple, for the same reason that I have a bottle of Rose Hydrosol from mountain rose herbs on my dressing table at all times. It’s amazing what a spritz can do for your mood, long about February. Not to mention the power to keep you lady-like in sweltering August. Authentic Rose fragrance has supernatural powers to fight depression, I am certain of it

I think so. Since I live by myself, it’s hard to feel pampered or even girly when nobody else sees you that way. Flowers have that ability, especially roses and violets.

I am not a huge floral tea fan but this one was so elegant and arsenic-and-old-lace. Liked it immensely. Need to have a long swirly full skirt on to drink it ;)

WARNING: OPINIONATED

I take my tea plain, no sugar, no milk. I don’t think I should have to wheedle nudge or cadjole the flavor to reconcile it to the name on the label. If it’s good, it should stand up by itself.

Excellent Video on how to prepare matcha http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8NRB93In-rE

Favourites—Chinese tea. European blends. Black, puerh, oolong, spiced and Guayusa. Kusmi, Butiki
Meh to Ick—White tea, Indian tea then green is pretty far down on my list.
Dislikes—Rooibos. Matcha. Anything with hibiscus. Lipton. Celestial Seasonings. Bigelow. Red Rose. Red Leaf Tea.


I just love my camelia. Even if I hate a certain kind of tea, I still find it’s provenance interesting. The cultural aspects are every bit as fascinating as the flavor aspects, or maybe more so. Empires have been built and bankrupted over the humble tea leaf.


Becomming cynical about tea companies that are too hyped. Certain tea companies that use candy in their blend, certain tea companies that give away free tea for reviews posted all over the internet with links back to their store. Once someone has posted that kind of review, I tend to discredit their objectivity. I’m no longer interested in reading their reviews. sorry.


FYI—female—married— to a coffee drinker (but he is willing to try my exotic teas, bless him)
