Golden Moon Tea Rose
A rose by any other name… Oh, the lovely scent of roses. As a child, many of the important older women in my life all seemed to use a particular brand of rose lotion, giving me a definite sense memory of strong older, rose scented women who made me feel safe. And this tea definitely tripped that trigger. Highly scented, and very rose. I was enveloped in comfort as I inhaled the steeping brew.
But I also had a slight worry. I’ve had a few floral teas that taste like drinking perfume. Would this one taste like rose perfume? Smelling good is all fine and dandy, but the best memories can’t mitigate a cup of perfume. It would be downgraded to potpourri at that point. Luckily – my fears were TOTALLY unfounded. This tea tasted as lovely as it smelled. Unsweetened, it carried with it flavors of honey and an underlying sweetness. It also had a slight nuttiness to the brew.
I will definitely be purchasing some of this tea for myself. It had good memories, good aromas and good flavors. What could be better!
