You can see by the picture this is very pretty to look at straight out of the pouch. I am not accustomed to such large petal pieces. It was a bit difficult to know how much leaf to use even though the instructions are clearly printed on the sample.

The dry scent is much stronger on the bergamot than in the cup. There is a nice amount of briskness in the black tea base. While bergamot is the driving force, the base is easily tasted. The rose is a supporting flavor. You don’t have to search for it, at the same time it doesn’t flower up the cup.

I found the interaction between the rose and bergamot unexpectedly delightful. This is not a big bold cup of citrus and flowers. To my tastes it is a gentler cup for a quiet afternoon with a book or a conversation with a friend. As a guy, this is not so girly that I would be embarrassed to serve it.

Oh, and there were several nice touches that personalized my package. The only one I’ll mention at this time is the samples came in resealable pouches. How awesome is that? Sure beats having to resort to the paperclip method I use now for leftover samples.

Earl Grey and Rose? How has this not occurred to me!? I see a new obsession forming for me;)

Those rose petals are huge! I am going to have to add this to my list to buy for sure, I am such a sucker for teas with rose in it.

Rose does make a nice edition ti a strong earl grey doesn’t it? I have a Polish Earl Grey with roses hat I adore when I’m in the mood for it.

I just got my RiverTea package today, and if you think those are large chunks just wait until I have picks up the Boatsman blend I got! Damn that one has large chunks! Everything feels SO incredibly personalized though, doesn’t it? I’m loving it ^^

As soon as you open the package you know this is yours. I have been trying to stay out of it until I have time to do it justice.

Today’s the first day I’ve had off in 14 days – so I’ve been trying tons of the teas I got today. First day in what seems like forever that I haven’t felt rushed :) So I tried one of my five teas today, and it was awesome!

oh this IS yummy! i was afraid it would be too perfume-y rose-y, or even just mostly artificial tasting, but no it was not at all! the roses make this tea look just gorgeous when dry, and taste simply delightful as tea. quite flowery without being overwhelming, and the earl grey is just so complemented by the addition of the rose petals. just perfect. (although i feel a strange compulsion to throw a tea party as soon as possible..crumpet? scone? TEACAKES!!!)
