A zesty mixture of hibiscus, rosehips, lemon peel, lemon grass and lemon myrtle. Caffeine free.
Lemon Rose contains lemon peel, rosehips, hibiscus, lemongrass and lemon myrtle. The cup is zesty and citrusy, and a lovely rose color. We prefer to use only natural ingredients for our herbal blends, and avoid the common practice of enhancing the cup with flavorings. The bright rosy color comes primarily from the top quality hibiscus flowers that we select for this all-herbal blend. Peet’s herbals offer a flavorful cup without the caffeine.
This tea is also available by the pound.
Box contains 25 tea bags. Each tea bag comes individually wrapped.

This tea has a very distinct lemon flavor to it, and the rose and hibiscus are very noticeable. I have an on-and-off relationship with hibiscus, and while it’s obvious they made an effort to not have it overpower the rest of the tea, it is noticeable enough to really steal a lot of attention. I was looking for a subtle rose flavor with a touch of lemon, and this isn’t it. With the addition of honey, it takes on the taste of a floral hibiscus lemonade with some rose. Tart, sassy, sweet — but not quite what I was expecting or wanting from the “Lemon Rose” name.
It might make a really nice iced tea for a hot summer day, or a good tea for mixing up an Arnold Palmer… especially for someone who really loves hibiscus. As for me, it’s not bad and I’ll probably drink the bags I bought every now and then… but I’m not sure I’ll buy this box of teabags again.
