From Stash Tea Company

White Rose is a masterful blend of white tea with rose petals and rosebuds. This fragrant blend has a delectable rose flavor and aroma with a hint of fruit. Grown in the Fujian province of China, this floral blend brews a delicate light golden color in the cup with a subtle astringency. Good for a second infusion.

My luck hasn’t improved by much, I rolled a two today. Feeling a little glum about that :( But at least there is only a single package left rated 1 (yes, there were two 1 packages in the box), so I can either roll that tomorrow, or something higher. Three cheers to a high roller tomorrow.

Oh, and here’s a link to a picture I took of the fancy decorated little tea packages I received for Geek Pride day!

Tonights tea is a white tea, full of beautiful miniature rosebuds that are highly fragranced. This artificial rose scent reminds me of how my grandma’s house always smelled. Especially her bathroom, as she had rose scented soap, bubble bath and the works in her bathroom. Ah, the happy childhood memories.

Surprisingly the wet leaves tone down the rosaroma and create a softer bouquet that is easier on the palate. The tea is quite calm, and floral, as one would imagine, but surprisingly, the rose tastes quite awesome! It’s not soapy, it’s not like anything earthy, it’s not sweet. I don’t have words to describe this other than I can smell and “taste” the roses within this tea. I am quite enjoying this. It would be a fine tea to serve to lunching ladies, or an afternoon tea for a queen. Phew, I thought this “2” tea might be quite awful, but I’m quite enjoying it’s relaxing and calming qualities. I wonder if my breath will smell like roses? Thanks Rabs for this purely relaxing tea.

Oh lordy, I’m so sorry about the low rolls! I’m glad that this one pulled it out in the end and wasn’t anything like the Tangerine Ginger. At least you’re almost through all the lowest numbers :)

Oh wow those are lovely! (two 1 teas? that’s just cruel Rabs! Obviously, I approve.)

I got this on a whim since I’ve always wanted to try a rose tea and so far I’m really enjoying white tea. It arrived today and I popped open the bag (*special note on Stash’s loose leaf tea containers: if you have a kitty and you give him kitty treats out of those crinkly bags, then be aware that this is how their tea comes. My poor schmoo was so utterly baffled as to why he wasn’t getting treats. I shall be getting some different tea containers soon).

Okay. So. The smell was insane. Like “HEY I’m a HUGE bouquet of cheap flowers and I’m gonna punch you in your naughty bits via your sinus cavities!” The smell utterly devestated me. I wanted a giant cup of fou-fou and not a giant cup of anger!

I went ahead and gave it a go since I’ve discovered what a difference a steep makes. Praise Jeebus that it did indeed mellow the heck out of it. The tea taste was much more prominent (not a ton, but it was there), and the smell was better. It was more like my aforementioned “fou-fou” desire. Like the Jasmine I’ve tried it gets bonus points for scent memory in that it reminded me of a childhood friend’s “Barbie Perfume Maker” set and the rose water it contained. (After typing this I looked up the Barbie Perfume Maker and it turns out the scent I recalled is named “Tea Rose Water.” Brilliant!)

And I think the second steep was ideally what I was hoping for. (I did go for a third – white tea and all. Yeah, not so much. Truly barely rose water.) I shall go forth and quest for my ultimate girlie-girl rose tea, but I’d probably order this one again. NE
