kteaslogoIt seems as though it is the season for summer colds and everyone around here besides myself has succumbed to the virus. So needless to say, I have been the one making Nyquil runs. So now that I have everyone settled, it is my time to relax. I wanted a tea that would take me away from all the sniffling. When I opened my sample of KTeas’ China Rose, I just knew that I had my prescription for relaxation.

The leaves in my sample appear to be a typical black tea, a deep blackish brown, thin and wiry. They do appear to be a higher quality then a lot of flavored teas and there aren’t any broken leaves within. There are a few bits and pieces of rosebuds scattered amidst the leaves. The aroma of the dry sample is sweetly floral but not really rose scented. It is just a pleasant floral scent that I wouldn’t mind using as an incense.

I brewed up a four cup pot using one tablespoon of tea and a water temp. of 210 degrees. I let it steep for three minutes. The resulting liquor is a golden brown in color with not a lot of aroma. I can catch just a hint of roses here and there.

China Rose is a gentle tasting tea. The roses give it a natural sweetness and the tea base is well suited to this tea with no rough edges to smooth away. This is a tea that I would sip when I am curled up with a good book and just want to relax. Would I purchase this tea? Sure, especially if I was already planning on picking up some other teas from KTeas. And right now they are having a sale on this blend and several others as they are trying to clear them out to make room for some new packaging.
