Tea #9 from Traveling Tea Box C

This tea was added to the box by BrewTEAlly Sweet, but I wasn’t able to find anything about it online except for an expired Etsy page. All the information on here came from the baggie she sent it in.

My nose has been acting up, so I can’t be exact, but to me this smells vaguely chocolatey. As you can tell from the picture I took, it’s obviously a black tea with some very pretty rose petals that add dimension and color.

After I steeped it, I was surprised to find the vanilla was so prominent. The black tea plays second fiddle to it, and the rose petals make only a slight appearance. That said, I can easily picture a pot of this sitting happily with a nice scone or two.

This was fun to try, but I think it will also be moving on to the traveling tea box’s next destination.

Its a vanilla rose black tea:) thank you for adding it to the data base. I meant to add it. I put it in their because it’s one of my favorites and so people can compare it to the rooibos base one that I found in the box :)

Feel free to browse my cupboard if you’re interested in swapping, but all the mate and pu-erh in our household is my husband’s.

For swapping purposes, please note the apple allergy. Thank you!

I tried to limit my cupboard to teas that were 1oz or larger, but that was a gorgeous failure in terms of swap communication. It’s all going back up.


Okay, I just feel wrong trying to grade things without a rubric – it’s too inconsistent! So, here is the grading breakdown:

0-50: Dump it!
50-60: I might finish the cup
60-70: Possibly finish the pot
70-80: I may keep this on hand
80-90: Cupboard space guaranteed
90-100: Poetry may be involved!
