Taster’s Review:

I know I’ve mentioned it before (probably more than once!) – but Red Leaf Tea has such an impressive collection of Earl Grey Teas!

I’ve tried rose infused Earl Grey teas before, but, this one is different from some of the others I’ve tried.  The rose essence is very well-defined, providing a strong rose presence in the cup.

The bergamot is also strong, and I like how the floral notes of the rose add definition to the floral notes of the bergamot, allowing the citrus fruit’s sweeter, more exotic side to shine through.  I still taste the bright, juicy quality of the tangy fruit, but, I am able taste some of its more botanical qualities here as well.

The rose and bergamot meld together quite nicely, offering a taste that is perfumed without tasting like a bottle of cheap perfume.  Instead, this has a heady, aromatic quality that can be tasted – it’s quite sultry and romantic.

A very enjoyable Rose Earl Grey.
