From Simpson & Vail

During the drying process, China black tea is delicately scented with rose petals to produce Rose Congou Tea. The resulting brew is a fragrant copper colored cup with a slightly sweet floral taste. Roses have long been heralded as symbols of romance, respect, hope and beauty. Try a cup of this aromatic brew and see what unfolds for you!

Brew tea at 212º – steep for 3 minutes.

Tea of the afternoon here – I did jivamukti yoga this morning and am going to restorative yoga tonight. Pretty impressive for someone with a fractured finger but I did have to modify some of the standing poses.

Anyway this is a really nice rose congou but I’ve had it for a while and haven’t been drinking it fast enough (story of my life). I think it has lost a bit of the rose flavor. Someday I should try this as an iced tea.

Yay for Jivamukti yoga! I have their book, & somewhere around here I think I have a video too. I think they are my fav yoga people, although I’ve never been to one of their classes or anything. I just love their commitment & individuality :)

Bonnie

So, all the lead up and no details! What happened? Were you gesturing or was it a legit fall or saving-someone’s-life finger injury? I’m being disrespectful!I hope your finger is better soon!

TeaBrat

Terri- yeah they are new to me but I really liked the class I did.

Bonnie – I thought I mentioned it before but I smashed my pinkie finger on a rock last week. :(

Bonnie

Yikes ouch! Thought you might have played super hero on the Mini!

Bonnie

I wrote Muni not mini…stupid autocorrect!

Bonnie – the UPS driver asked me if I got into a bar fight — he he he!

Bonnie

You should have said yes…your deliveries would always be on time!

I’m finally starting to clean out some room in my tea cabinet now. I am preparing to finish the last of this after I type this review. To sum up everything I’m about to say, this is a very nice rose congou at a great price.

I prepared this tea by steeping 1 teaspoon in 8 ounces of 212 F water for 3 minutes. I’ve played around with my brewing technique on this one a little. I’ve found that I can steep this for around 5 minutes with no harsh flavors. I would say it could probably be left even longer without acquiring too much astringency. I also think this would probably make a great iced tea.

After infusion, the resulting liquor is a clear amber. Mild aromas of caramel, rose, cocoa, and cream were apparent on the nose. In the mouth, I picked up distinct notes of cocoa, caramel, cream, butter, and of course, rose. The finish offers a lovely and soothing mix of caramel, cream, and rose.

This tea is not at all complex or deep, but it is very appealing regardless. One thing that helps it is that it is super easy to drink. It also provides just enough black tea flavor to provide a semblance of balance to the floral notes. It’s nice. I recommend it highly.
