Thumbs up!"This is a delicious rose tea - it excels above and beyond many other rose teas I've encountered, and seems very fresh, and a very nice balance of flavor without being overpowering. If you have never encountered one and are looking to expand your palate, I heartily recommend this one."

teasetcwhiteroseI'm not one to shy away from "unmanly" activities or nuances, but for some reason, drinking rose tea just feels girly as all get-out. Nonetheless, it never hampers my ability to enjoy a hot cup of it. I've always been a fan of nonbitter floral teas - namely hibiscus and rose, as I can't recall many others. This simple blend of white tea and rose petals also includes some chrysanthemum as well (for an extra girly touch!). There are lots of comments from the various female users of Teas Etc.'s forum that indicate how relaxing and calming and soothing and gentle and mild it is. And I suppose that's all true. The scent of roses just naturally conjures up gentility, so it's applicable to say this tea has those properties as well. It goes better with bubble bath than it does bungee jumping.

Any fan of rose tea will know what's in store here. The white tea (Teas Etc. indicates it's bai mu dan, but I find plenty of tippy, furry silver needle leaves in the blend as well) makes for a perfect base with the flower petals. The cup brews up a perfect shade of clear, golden yellow. Despite the gentle nature of this tea, I find that it stands up to very hot water temperature just as well as it does around the 170-degree range. The rose is nice, not bitter in the least, and naturally sweet - as with any rose tea, that flavor becomes dominant, particularly when paired with white tea leaves.

This is a delicious rose tea - it excels above and beyond many other rose teas I've encountered, and seems very fresh, and a very nice balance of flavor without being overpowering. If you have never encountered one and are looking to expand your palate, I heartily recommend this one.

    This has to be one of my favorite rose teas.

    I am surprised about seeing hibiscus called not bitter though. I love the stuff but it is rather tart…but I guess that isn’t bitter
