This rose tea is a black flavored tea that is supposed to be a great iced tea, one of the most popular at Golden Moon Tea (which is why it was sent to me in an iced tea sampler). I’m sure it would be great iced but of the three cups I’ve already tried, they’ve all been hot!
Golden Moon Tea describes this tea to be “intoxicating and heady”. Now, for the sake of this post, I’m going to look up the word “heady”:
intoxicating or stupefying; tending to upset the mind or senses; exhilarating; intellectual – Wiktionary
I’ll have to agree with the “heady” description. A whiff of this tea sends your head spinning with romantic thoughts of rose gardens or maybe Valentine’s Day (on a good year). The smell reminds me of rose incense or John’s rose tobacco being smoked through a hookah.
The rose flavor in this tea is strong. It’s a smidgen away from being a little too strong. It calms me and kind of slows everything down for a little while when I’m sipping it.
I have no idea what else to write about this tea, though. It’s flowery but duh, you could have told me that and you may not have even tried this tea before. It’s hard to try to convince anyone to try this—I think if you like rose you’ll like this tea and if you don’t, you won’t.
