Leaf Type: White
Where to Buy: Shanti Tea
Roses have long been a symbol of love and beauty. This blend of organic rose petals and white tea’s silky smoothness is exquisitely subtle and supremely healthy. High in antioxidants and vitamin C, this delicate white tea blend will be the beginning of a long lasting love affair.
The aroma of the dry leaf is so beautiful – I just love the smell of rose teas, and I’m finding this one especially appealing because the fragrance of the white tea is so soft amid the beautiful scent of rose. The rose is allowed to fully express itself in this bouquet. Truly lovely.
While the fragrance of the brewed liquor is quite a bit softer than the dry leaf, it is still very beautifully rose scented. This is one of those teas that MUST be inhaled before sipping to gain the full luxurious effect of the flower.
The flavor of this tea is wonderful! The rose mingles with the white tea leaves nicely, creating a very smooth, supple taste that glides over the palate deliciously. The white tea base is soft but tastes fresh and soothing, while the rose tastes sweet with distinctive sharp notes. It is a very relaxing cup – it is a bit like a trip to the spa in a teacup!
