I have no idea why I wanted this so badly. I was afraid to try it at first because ROSE ROSE ROSE the smell is so pungent!
But apparently I am on a rose kick. I think it has to do with the amount of Doctor Who I’ve been watching lately.
Is it really a rose kick if it’s only been since 4pm and this is all the rose you have?
I steeped it for 3 1/2 minutes because I never trust DT’s black base with 4+ minutes. So far, so good. I took a sip of it without any additions, and it was surprisingly okay. This is really my first rose tea but I love them and have come to appreciate most floral flavors.
I added agave and milk anyway just to be on the safe side and I do like it a lot better this way. I think it helped bring the white chocolate out too. It really just reminds me of candied rose petals.
Now I want more rose teas, bad Amanda.
Only thing that’s really offputting is that it still smells like perfume when you hold the mug to your face, and the oil slick on the surface combined with that makes you want to think twice about drinking it, it could just be perfume.
Thankfully, it’s tasty.
