Backlog:

A really good Rose Congou! I had heard much about chilling Rose Congou, but it was something I had never tried until I got this Rose Congou Emperor from Culinary Teas and I decided to try it out. It’s fantastic iced! It might even be better iced than hot. That’s not something I can say about every tea because I am a hot tea drinker more so than an iced tea drinker (although I do keep a pitcher of iced tea in the fridge at all times now because it’s nice to have something chilled to drink with meals and such)

When iced, this Rose Congou reminds me a little bit of baklava that has been flavored with rose water. The rose is soft, not at all perfume-ish or soapy.

Here’s my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/08/04/rose-congou-emperor-tea-from-culinary-teas/

I received this from LiberTEAS in the Love of Food box. Thank you!

I have been very leery of rose. This was a light black tea with hints of rose. The rose was not over powering, but blended well with the flavor of the black tea. I have had a few rose teas and they are usually more perfumey. This was not the case for this tea.
