1st Infusion, 1-1.5 minutes:
Before Infusion Aroma – A Rose is a Rose is a Rose!
Post Infusion Aroma – Rose and Ginger Combo
Taste – a nice flavored oolong the rose and ginger flavors seemed to have met in the middle.
Aftertaste – Floral

This is so PRETTY. You’ll have to see it or SMELL it for yourself to believe it! I’m going to try a 2nd infusion.

Backlog:

I updated this tea a little because it’s now organic. So with the new ‘change’ to the tea, I reviewed the organic version here: http://sororiteasisters.com/2014/09/11/organic-rose-ginger-oolong-tea-from-aftelier-perfumed-teas/

Because it’s been a while since I had the previous non-organic version of this tea, it would be difficult to sit back and compare the two based only on memory and previous reviews. But, I am of the belief that organic is better. It’s better for the earth, it’s better for our bodies.

The rose and the ginger play very well together. It’s not really a flavor combination I would have thought of putting together, but I’m glad that Aftelier did because I really enjoyed it. The TieQuanYin has a light earthy quality to it with wisps of smoke in the background. Lightly creamy, a buttery note that is more like browned butter than fresh, creamy butter. The roasted notes of the TieQuanYin add a nutty dimension to the cup that is quite pleasant.

I was surprised at how the “baked in” flavors of this tea remain after many infusions. A really lovely tea – I highly recommend the tea collection from Aftelier.

Truly a complete sensory experience from master perfume atelier Mandy Aftel. A must for any lover of beauty and adventure, even those who aren’t obsessed with tea. The smell alone is divine. Pairing pure rose and ginger with this complex oolong takes it to a new level of heaven.

This was the more approachable of the two oolongs I received, so I saved it for last. This is very interesting. I decided to ice it after I steeped it so it was a tad watered down, but still good.

When I think of ginger I think of the ginger salads you get as starters at sushi restaurants. I love those house ginger dressings, always so much better than anything I’ve tried in store.

So naturally that’s what this tea reminded me of. I can totally see this being served along side the starter at sushi restaurants. The rose and the ginger meld so perfectly together, a combination I would have never thought of. Light and florally with a little spice of ginger to add a depth that you weren’t expect. Now I really want ginger house salad.
