Tea #40 from HHTTB2
The leaves are quite small and broken, so I was unsure they’d stand up to a 6 minute infusion time as was recommended. So I erred on the side of caution, so keep in mind my review is for the tea at the parameters below.
This is the least rose-flavored of the three rose teas I’ve tried in the box. But it’s still quite good.
The primary flavor that comes through is the white base, which is delicate with fresh hay and apricot notes. The rose adds a definitely rose flavor as well as a gentle sweetness. It’s not nearly as immersive as other rose teas I’ve had, but good for those who enjoy the flavors of rose, but can find it overwhelming.
Today’s tea is Organic Wild Rose by Tea District, a blend of whole-leaf white tea blended with wild roses. I love roses in tea, it might be my favorite flower to add to tea, but clearly I will need to sit down and do a test one day. The aroma of this tea is clearly rosy, but not the really strong rose perfume you can get at times, it is like a faint rose garden. There are also notes of new growth, sage, and a hint of pepper. It is vaguely reminiscent of early summer.
Once the tea leaves have been steeped the aroma of the wet leaves is a balanced blend of sweet roses and fresh vegetation with just a gentle finish of pepper. The liquid without its flowery leaves is rosy and sweet with just a hint of hay and honey.
The taste is fairly sweet, like flower nectar and fresh roses. After the initial flowery taste there are notes of lettuce and a hint of sage.There is a slightly dry yet refreshing mouthfeel, and just a gentle hint of fuzzy trichomes. he aftertaste is a touch of fresh vegetation and morning dew. This tea is also quite good chilled, very light and refreshing.
