From The Tao of Tea

Origin: China

Introduction: Also known as ‘Meigui Hongcha’, Rose Petal Black is a blend of the popular Chinese black tea ’Keemun’ and fragrant red rose petals.

Robust Keemun
The small leaf tea from Qimen county of Anhui province is best known as the main ingredient for the popular ‘English Breakfast’ blends.

Red Rose Petals
Although there is a whole universe of rose varieties and flavors, the ideal for combining with Keemun are the red roses native to Qimen county. They have a distinct, sweet, cooling aroma that lends great balance to the blend.

Pairing
Rose Petal Black pairs well with slightly spicy and oily foods. It also makes a good iced tea. One of our favorite recipes is to prepare a sauce from Rose Petal Black and pour it over vanilla ice cream.

Best Season
Late Summer is ideal for blending Rose Petal Black. This is when the flowers are in full bloom and at their most fragrant. Since it is a hardy black tea, it holds up well over the months.

Rose Petal Black was one of my stock teas at school this year, since it’s just sweet enough for me to drink without added milk or sugar if necessary. That said, it’s not a particularly stellar tea; I’m not sure I’d buy it again often.
