Thumbs up!"What I love so much about this tea is that the rose flavor is fresh and there are no additional flavorings with this tea, just simply rose and black tea. Grab a taste of online at Canton's website and relax into a cup that will have you. "

cantonuyunnanroseCanton Tea Company, if you don't know it already, is on my list of best tea companies. I have never been truly let down by one of their teas. When it comes to rose tea, it's easy for the rose flavor to turn pungent and almost stale tasting, that is maybe the rose buds I've been using to make my own blends are not as fresh as Canton's. I was actually very surprised by the appearance of the flower in this tea. The rose was fresh and crisp looking as if it was freeze dried. I received a sample with about 13 rose clippings, since the package wasn't that large and I didn't want to get all black tea or all rose I chose 4 roses to fit in with about 2 teaspoons of Yunnan black tea and brewed at about 195F.

This is a beautiful tea, from the look to the last drop. The liquor is dark maroon red, and tells of a romantic night with sweet kisses. The romance is enticing as the Yunnan black tea hits your tongue combined with the scent of a delicate bouquet and the taste of rose long lasting at the end. This is a perfect afternoon escape from work, or as a sultry getaway at night. Even perfect iced, enjoyed outdoors with a friend on a picnic table with a sweet summer berry tart.

As an iced tea, the rose carries a more masculine taste to it, not as delicate as it was hot, but more pungently sweet. What I love so much about this tea is that the rose flavor is fresh and there are no additional flavorings with this tea, just simply rose and black tea. Grab a taste online at Canton's website and relax into a cup that will have you.
