From Tea Emporium

A traditional flavoured black tea from China. During the drying process these tea leaves are layered with rose petals which impart their bouquet and flavours into the tea creating an infusion that is light liquoring with refreshing hint of roses.
Tip: Use 1tsp per 6oz cup; heat fresh water to a boil; let steep 3-5 minutes.

Not bad not bad!
More rosy this time, I think, and yet still chocolatey… not as smooth though.
Oh, and I tried it with milk. Nicer than I expected! It reminds me of what I imagine Earl Grey tastes like to the normal folk out there- the EG I so fervently wish I could partake in!
So…. I’ve made myself a compromise. Henceforward, in my mind, this is an “Indigobloom Early grey” :)

MaddHatter

Yay, for finding an “Earl Grey” for you!!

Indigobloom

hehe thx! I’m craving it again already- odd for me, I’ll go through my whole stash and still find myself wishing for something else :P

It has been a strange week so far… To start off, on Monday I assisted in my boyfriend’s endoscopy (I studied medicine…) and the Doctor found a huge hernia (it was the biggest I have ever seen…). So we now have an operation that needs to be programmed… Tuesday and Wednesday bunched together in my mind and I am glad that it is almost Friday… I can’t wait for the weekend… Thankfully I get to go the Roxette concert tomorrow which should make Thursday easier to digest… Now to actually review this tea.

I love rose flavored things so when I received this from Indigobloom in a swap I was super happy. The black leaves had a few rose petals scattered amongst them. The scent of the dry leaves wasn’t very rosey… It reminded me of a Pu Erh without the fishiness. I got a pleasnt leather note in the scent.

Brewed for 3 minutes it was a bit weak, so I brewed it for an extra minute. It smelled of new leather with a hint of rose. Somehow this appealed to me. The extra minute of brewing made it a tad bit bitter, but it wasn’t bad at all. A touch of sweetener fixed it all up. The flavor was leathery with the perfect amount of astringency. The after taste was a mouthful of delicate rose. Sweetened the after taste was enhanced for a delicious tea experience. It really was like a Pu Erh with all the fishiness removed leaving behind leather and sweet smootheness. I really enjoyed this.

I would recomend this to anyone who is looking for a lightly flavored rose tea. Yum… I wish I had more. : )

You’d probably like the new Rose Congou from DavidsTea. Or Three Wishes Tea (if you haven’t tried it already). Very rosy!
