It is difficult to smell tea through the tea bag. No dry aroma really but a slight rose aroma when wet.
The woodsy and earthy tones are subdued by wonderful rose flavors. Literally like walking into a rose garden and being immersed in many different rose aromas. But it’s not an overwhelming sensation; instead, it is relaxing and uplifting. A great way to start the morning.
Heck, this is a great cuppa for midday or perfect for a tea party.

Grown in an artisanal style, this special black tea is grown in a medium region that is of special note. Sri Lanka’s Kandy region, from which this tea hails, is where Ceylon tea was first founded. In 1867 a Scotsman named James Taylor started Sri Lanka’s first tea plantation estate. With a short brewing time, you’ll be able to enjoy this rich light copper coloured liquid in a matter of moments. Sweet overtones blend with the slight touch of bitters in this unique tea making it taste like an Earl Grey. Featuring both an aroma and flavour of a strawberry vanilla mix you’ll enjoy this tea best in the morning or afternoon.
