Another tea that was gifted to me.
To be perfectly honest I found the Rose to be cloying and far too strong.
However, after carefully removing the dried rose petals, I do like it. Has a malty Black Tea flavour, overlaid with the floral and perfumey Rose essence. Not bad, but not a favourite.
I will probably be saving this for guests who like floral flavours in their tea.
Harvey Nichols Rose Congou Tea is a scented Congou produced by infused China Black tea with the natural scent and oils of fresh roses. Rose petals are strewn over the tea, worked into it, and then sifted out and replaced by fresh ones until the required flavour is achieved.
