mmm…Berry & Rose latte with my breakfast this morning…damn that’s good stuff. I cooked it on the stove as one would chai. The milk and sugar really helped to bring out the strawberry. :)
I received this in my secret santa box from Jaime – thanks Jaime!
This is a very flavorful cuppa. I didn’t expect much since it’s a bagged tea but it really tastes nice. The rose is prominent, and the berry flavor whispers through. I found that a little bit of agave nectar helped bring out the strawberry a bit, so I recommend the addition.
A nice tea! Thanks Jaime!
My coworker asked for some boiling water from my kettle for noodles, so I thought, “Ah! Good excuse for more tea!” Jaime kindly sent me this one!
The rose and berry mix in a very delightful way. This is sort of like a low rent Marco Polo, I think! It’s a little bitter, even though I steeped it for barely two minutes. I suspect it’s the fact that it’s Indian tea, and of the “dust” persuasion ;) I put a half teaspoon of sugar in after tasting it, and it helped round it out a bit. In spite of that, it’s one of the better tea bags I’ve had! The rose is present but not cloying or “rose lotion.”
I’m really enjoying this, and I’m glad I have one more bag to have the next time someone asks me for some boiling water out of my kettle in the afternoon :)
This was a pretty impressive flavored bagged tea! Thanks LiberTEAs! The first steep was a tad tart-berry with floral-rose highlights but nothing I couldn’t handle. I must say I enjoyed the 2nd steep a better tho…the tartiness was minimal and the berry shined thru with the rose underneath…it was juicier without being as tart as the first steep! Nice!
Oh, my. This smells just like an English rose garden. The kind where you’re supposed to wear fancy dresses and gloves and walk around carrying an umbrella to protect your delicate skin from the sun.
It tastes like rose water, mashed up ripe strawberries, and strong black tea. I brewed for 5 minutes, but I think I’ll try 3 next time, cause there’s just a hint of bitterness from the tea that I’m tasting, and I think I’d notice more of the berry & rose without that there. It’s still delicious, and I’m very happy to have found this in my town!
Not a fan of floral teas but I could not resist the adorable packaging. I am such an easy target for marketing. As usual, I am pleasantly surprised. The rose flavor is just a subtle note, as is the berry, and the black is decent. A nice little variation. I will probably get some more just because I am afraid they are going to discontinue these teas soon, and it makes me feel kind of desperate.
