Rose Black tea
Click to enlarge image(s)

June is rose month – but this lovely tea is perfect for sipping any time of year. In fact, for those of us who live in colder climes, winter might be more apropos. The reason? This tea has the ability to make any room burst with the aromas of the arrival of spring. Rose tea however, is not a new arrival to the world of tea. In China they have been drinking rose scented tea for millennia. In Britain, rose tea has been a staple of garden parties since the days of Queen Victoria. Just brew a cup, close your eyes, and take a sip. Where does this tea take you?

What type of tea do we use, how do we flavor the tea and why do we use natural flavors?

  •  We only use high grown teas from the top 3 tea growing regions of Sri Lanka - Nuwara Eliya, Dimbula and Uva. These three high-grown districts produce flavorful teas that have classic ‘Ceylon’ tea character which is noted by floral bouquet and flavor notes, touches of mild astringency, bright coppery color and, most importantly - perfect for use as the base tea of our flavored teas. (We have tested teas from various other origins around the world as base stock for our flavored teas, but none of these teas made the grade.) Dimbula and the western estates of Nuwara Eliya have a major quality peak during Jan/Feb, whereas Uva and the eastern estates of Nuwara Eliya have their peak in July/Aug. This ‘dual peak period’ allow us to buy the best for our flavored tea blends several times during the year, ensuring top quality and freshness.
 
  • We use flavoring oils not crystals to give the tea drinker an olfactory holiday before indulging in a liquid tea treat.
 
  • We specify natural flavors. High quality tea tastes good and natural flavors do not mask the natural taste of the high grown Ceylon tea. (The norm for many making flavored tea is to use overpowering artificial flavors, which can be used to hide lower quality tea). Natural flavors do not leave an aftertaste giving the tea a clean and true character. It should be noted that natural flavors tend to be somewhat ‘soft ‘ and the flavors slightly muted, but for many this is a refreshing change and one of the desired attributes of our naturally flavored teas.

        Amazing and relaxingJust had a cup of this tea after coming off of a late night shift and I have to say it is one of the most delicious teas I’ve ever had. I had bought a sample of this tea at the Central Virginia Celtic Festival & Highland Games because I personally love all things rose related and now wish I had bought more of it. Will be looking forward to buying more! Written by Sam on Sat 4 Nov 2017 6:25:43 AM GMT
        rainy day teafrom the moment you start brewing this tea you get hit with the lovely fragrence of roses. my personal recommendation is to double steep this tea in VERY hot water so you can allow it to sit longer. it does not need anything added and if you do add something i would suggest nothing more then a sigle sugar cube or a touch of honey. it has a soft yet very present flavor that is great for a cold a rainy day or someone trying to get over a cold. for those who are not sick it is just a soothing cup to sit and relax with Written by Yashimaru 'Pirate' Bishounen on Tue 24 May 2016 6:40:25 PM GMT
