teasetcwhiteroseDespite my delving deeper in the world of serious teas, I still have a secret love for floral teas. For that reason I was excited to get a generously sized sample of this selection. Upon first opening the bag the floral scent was very powerful, predominated by the rose petals. The dry tea had a scattering of white tea leaves but consisted mostly of bright pink rose petals and white blobs of chrysanthemum blooms. I like the fact that this tea is organic since flowers are often treated with chemical fertilizers and pesticides. I first brewed it according the manufacturers directions, with water close to boiling and steeped for 4 minutes. The second brewing was done using a Zarafina Tea Maker set on Medium White.

Neither attempt was much to my liking. The first try was way too strong and very sweet. I had seen other good reviews of this tea so I figured I should give it another go. Shay used a Zarafina when she did her review so I used all of the same settings in hopes that the water temperature would make a difference. I just couldn’t shake the feeling that I was drinking potpourri or my rose water linen spray. I think when it comes to floral ingredients less is more. I’d rather have the white tea delicately accented than completely drowned out. I would not recommend this tea.
