Rose Congou, The Emperor of Teas, is a special and intriguing tea. A supple, firm non-broken black tea from China, its character becomes almost delicate and ethereal when infused with the scent of thousands of rose petals. Congou is the generic name for a quality black China tea. This one is very fine, with a good balance of strength and flavour. This tea is ideal for drinking in the mid afternoon.
To brew use one heaped tsp per person in a warmed pot and add freshly drawn boiling water. Brew for 3-4 minutes according to taste. Drink with or without milk and sugar, but don’t use too much milk or you will lose much of the amazing flavour.
