Rose Scented Oolong Tea, Lot 317

Our Rose oolong is prepared by choosing the freshest flowers from the 1st and 2nd day of a new seasonal bloom. These are the most fragrant buds which will render our tea a beautifully balanced and soothing floral aroma as well as a sensual violet hue to the liquor. Roses render a beautifully voluptuous and heady sweetness to the cup which further accentuates the natural aromatic characteristics of the famous Cing Xin varietal used as a base for this blend. All in all; a beautiful balance of good body and lingering presence with soothing ethereal notes. A classic, eternal favorite.

The makers of this tea did a nice job of scenting this tea. They managed to keep the rose subtle, juicy and spicy and minimised the bitterness you can sometimes get in rose teas. The rose in this tea ranges from bright citrusy tea rose to sweeter and spicier damask. The base tea underneath is soft with cream, lemon, honey and peach and pineapple notes. It is also savoury with notes of white sweet corn, green beans, sandalwood and aged cedar. This tea resteeps quite well and has an interesting and changing taste profile. The floral notes are mostly from the scenting as any in the base tea seem very subtle. It took a couple steeps for the rose to develop in flavour. My favourite steep was probably the third but I came to really appreciate this tea.
