Ahhh…I’ve been holding off on finishing this sample that Doulton sent me. I thought it’d be nice to drink it right after a plain Keemun to get a better picture of their differences. I’m further impressed with this one’s subtle floral aspects. The second steep is definitely its best. TG

Today was the War of the Roses chez moi. I had consumed, with great pleasure, Rose Congou by Upton Tea Imports and then thought I would try another rose tea at hand, TeaSpring’s Rose Keemun.

The verdict is in: we have two winners. Upton’s offering decidedly has the greater rose aroma and taste but TeaSpring’s Keemun tastes more like a deep, rich, cup of tea. Rose Keemun has a lot of rose petals in it and looks very attractive yet the dry leaves don’t have much of a rose aroma. They smell a bit smoky, but not like a Souchong. Steeped, the tea liquer is a deeply satisfying and delightful Keemun—somewhat smoky and very layered and nuanced as a tea. The tea hints of many flavors—rose is among them. If I had a blind tasting I don’t know that I would identify the “rose” but I would get right away that it’s a high quality Keemun of distinctive and delicious flavor. I know that the congou is a Keemun tea, but TeaSpring has more of a distinctively “keemuny” smoky taste than does the Upton congou.

This Rose Keemun also has a very attractive “price-point” as Donald Trump would say (why doesn’t he just say “price?”) and I will order more. TeaSpring is a speedy and reliable shipper of teas direct from China.

I love the Rose Congou from Upton…

I had thought that perhaps this was in the Shakespeare box and finally got a chance to check before I got crazy-excited. I am now crazy-excited!

Now I want to try both of them! I have been looking at the Upton website for a long time. Maybe it is time to order….
