A combination of whole rosebuds and top quality china black tea, this is the ultimate rose-scented tea.

This tea was recommended by darky after seeing my review for Rose Petal Black by The Tao of Tea. I have been on a Keemun binge recently and unfortunately the Rose Petal Black by The Tao of Tea did not please me. I ordered this brand with a few other samples to try and they arrived this morning.

Upon opening the packet I was delighted to smell the familiar thick, earthy tang of Keemun whilst investigating the whole rose flowers of pink and yellow that were embedded within. It was enough to make my mouth water.

Brewed for 3 minutes and just under boiling as advised.

The smell once steeped was heavily malty yet sweet and floral. Flavour wise this had sweet and sour elements but much more palatable that I was expecting, it was a rather smooth and well balanced blend. The Keemun is of a good quality by itself and I was happy with the condition of the roses.

This was so nice that I had to have a second cup straight after my first cup and whilst contemplating my third cup I realised it was time for me to finish work. If a tea can put work out of my mind then that shows it’s yummy.

So far this is the nicest rose and Keemun blend I have tried, though I do have some more brands to try at some point.

I also got the Huo Shan Yellow Buds, Hojicha and Yellow Gold. I have been buying too much tea recently so I could only afford a small order but If the other tea’s are as good as the Keemun and Whole Rose then I shall order from them again. :)

darky

you will be in for a surprise, i liked all off there these so far! Waiting for your huo shan review! wanted to try those in near future aswel and probably hojicha to. The yellow gold, i can say is very jummy and citrussy i brewed those western style and can get about 4 to 5 cups out off it :) drank about 200grams of it over the last year i think but recently switched to try other oolongs

darky

oh btw i usualy don’t buy 10gram samples its a bit risky but i usualy go over directly to 50gram bags. Finding 10gram a bit less to experiment with the tea

I got a sample of this tea from KittyLovesTea in our last swap. Thanks so much! I couldn’t resist, especially considering my craving for rose recently! I used the entire sample in a pot this morning.

I really enjoyed this tea. The Keemun base was nice and yummy… I am really starting to enjoy a solid Keemun-only base on simply flavored teas, like Lupicia’s Earl Grey. The rose was also lovely, rich and strong but never perfumey. It reminded me somewhat of Upton’s Rose Congou, but with a somewhat stronger, sweeter rose. Definitely a delicious tea.

I want this tea based solely on what it looks like! Beautiful! Also, mmm, Keemun.

Terri HarpLady

i already did recommend this rose tea to someone here on steepster because i was impressed by the taste off this one. Its got a very good keemun black tea base and the rose scent comes from whole rose flowers. It looks beautiful when u open the package with the dry leaf in it and the smell is just like a rose garden!

When brewing this for 3min it results in a great yellow/brownish colored cup off tea with a very strong rose smell to it.

Taste wise u get the good keemun combined with the sweet and maybe a bit sour taste off roses its incredible if you ask me! a good tea to relax in the evening even if blacks are usually breakfast tea’s…
