markwendellrosecongouWhat better way to finish off a long weekend celebrating the end of summer than with a rose tea that reminds me of sitting on my front porch and enjoying the breeze off the rose bushes. Enter a tea that was sent to me by Mark T. Wendell the last time I placed an order.

This is a very fragrant tea with a rose aroma that really reminds me of old country roses. You know those ones that could smell a block off. And I have to give kudos to folks that make this blend in that the roses does not overpower that wonderful scent of black tea.

I set up the leaves to brew at 212 degrees for two minutes. The resulting liquor is a golden brown. The fragrance of the roses has really faded allowing me to enjoy instead ones of honey, a hint of clover along with a overall sweetness.

This tea really has a fruity, citrusy taste that walks right up and shakes your hand. This is followed burst of flowery sweetness that lingers on the roof of the mouth. This is a very smooth tea that is a pleasure to drink when hot but where this tea really shines is when it's cold.

And I want to thank Mark T. Wendell for sending me a large enough sample to be able to make up a pitcher to enjoy over ice. Along with the wonderful tastes mentioned above, the roses add just that extra element that raises it from good to great. I know that I will picking up a pound next summer. Heck I will probably pick some up earlier because it is so good hot also.

Visit Mark T. Wendell Teas for more information on this tea and many more from their extensive product catalogue.
