A friend of mine picked this up while we were perusing a Japanese grocery store. There were no ingredients listed on the canister. All it read was, “Chinese herbs and rose petals”. Further digging later online termed up nothing as well. The blend smelled primarily of rose. There were other petal-looking “thingies” in it with a white-to-beige appearance like chrysanthemum, but I didn’t get a sense of them in there.

I was a little weary of it at first when I saw the rose petals they used. Instead of pink ones, RoT blended this with red. Thankfully, they were few and far between. Never dominating. After brewing, this had a distinctively botanical scent – not quite bathwatery, praise Buddha – and settled into an omnipresent floral scent. The taste had a similar effect – floral, slightly buttery, and relaxing. Not my favorite rose blend ever, but one I’d never turn down.

Do you mean, “leery” (instead of “weary”), as in concerned (about the kind of rose petals)?

Ah yes, you are right.
