Had this this morning to get my day of laundry and studying started. It was delicious as always! Now off to work on a take-home final.

Beautiful. I love rose petals and black tea (also pu-erh tea, but that’s a different review) as a home concoction, and this very closely approximates what I would do on my own—except I like my mix a little rosier. It is also very close to Rose de Chine from Le Palais des Thés, which first bore my love for tasting rose and black notes simultaneously. A nominal note: it’s called “Gypsy Rose” in this “Romance Teas” sampler.

I first tried this tea maybe 4 years ago and absolutely loved it. The rose flavor was mild and sweet, and it sparked my love of rose-flavored teas. But having just bought another tin for the first time since then, I found myself pretty disappointed. The tea doesn’t live up to my memories at all. I remember it being subtle, but now the smell of the teabags and flavor of the tea reminds me of strong perfume. My roommate, who doesn’t like flowery scents, is affronted if I even open the tin in the room because the smell is so strong and lingers around. I don’t know whether my tastes have improved since I first tried this tea or if the “recipe” just changed at some point since then. I have to drink it with a lot of milk to mellow out perfume-y taste, and whereas I normally use two teabags per cup, I can only handle one of this. It might be more tolerable when combined with something like Earl Grey or a breakfast blend, though.

Still on my first and only tin of this, bought ages ago. Not a terrible blend, but nothing worth buying an entire tin of. Pretty forgettable, in my opinion!
