I’m actually quite addicted to this tea so ALWAYS like to have some in my cupboard .. Not that I drink it all that often, not even every week, but when I do I tend to make pot after pot of it .. In fact, I pulled it out last night for a before bed cuppa, and have already enjoyed two more pots today :P

It’s medium to light bodied, yet the tea itself isn’t completely hidden under the floral flavour .. And by floral I don’t mean like a highly perfumed Jasmine or Earl Grey .. No this is more like Rosewater than full-on Rose Petal – think Turkish Delight without the chocolate ..

I don’t find it overly sweet on it’s own, but it does have a real ‘candy-like’ quality about it which intensifies as it cools off .. I think it would be very much enjoyed by children, as both the aroma and flavour evoke (for me) images of little girls tea-parties in the garden .. Served elegantly with milk & sugar, cupcakes & cucumber sandwiches, I’m sure it would be an absolute winner!

  • I’ll be purchasing a fresh tin of this, as well as a few others from the same company very soon, so if anyone’s interested in a sample swap just send me a message :)

This mild, lightly rose-flavoured tea is perfect for finishing the day. Enjoy it in the evenings without milk, and feel your muscles loosen up. The flavour really is everything it says on the box: Tea and Rose

A clean and refreshing [break from espresso]. Faint rose delight candy aromas above a steadfast mild black. Sweet without sugar, floral without cloying. Not complex, but nice.
