304 Tasting Notes
At first glance of the tea description…rose petals ugh…smoke ugh! But I am pleasantly surprised at the layers of flavor. First, you smell the smokiness, but it is not the over the top smokey, just a slight smoke. Second, you taste a delicate backdrop of black teas and then on the back of your tongue the cream of a rose. I have not added milk or sugar this time.
I love this tea. Smooth, comforting, takes milk really well. If you have trouble enjoying this tea, try making it with 9 ounces of water instead of 6 and a brew time of 2 minutes. I do make this in a small teapot, which I feel adds depth to the brew. Once I stumbled on this ratio, my love for this tea grew. AND you gotta love the monkey!
