Hello dear readers, I return with a review of a tea that is one of my favorite combinations, black tea, and rose. Now I apologize profusely for the long absence. There has been a lot of real life stuff including a funeral and trying to wrap my brain around several literary theories. So I thought what better way to apologize than to review a tea that was based on two of my favorite things: Doctor Who (the tenth doctor will always have my heart) and of course roses (and of course I love Rose as a companion). A little personal tidbit about myself: I have rose in everything! I have rose serums, micellar water, rose infused witch hazel, perfumes, multiple teas, body butter, lotions, rose candy, shower gel, and face masks. So you can say I am a little obsessed.
So to get started, the thing that I always understand with a tea that is just black tea and rose petals is that it has the tendency to get a bit dry when you have it black. So to alleviate that I usually add a touch of milk and for those you of who are lactose-intolerant or otherwise the same effect can be achieved with a dairy-free creamer. Now this tea, when paired with a creamer, has the odd watery sweet flavor that I have come to love from roses. Paired with the black tea it has a bold finish that seems to give even more flavor to the rose petals. I like to think of it as a tea that soft and florally sweet with a boldness that will wake you up while also relaxing you.
Now on to the price of this tea. I do have a couple of qualms about this tea when it comes to how it is presented on the Geeky Teas website. While there is a close up picture of the tea I would like to know how much I get for the price of $9.95 and if it comes in a bag or a tin. I also wish that there was a sample option for I myself am very picky when it comes to my rose tea and if I didn’t get a sample for being a reviewer I wouldn’t want to drop about $10 on a gamble. Those reasons in mind I, unfortunately, can’t really say if this is a good price for this tea.
In conclusion, I would say that this was a good tea but for the reasons listed in the paragraph about prices I believe I won’t be reaching for it anytime soon. If you do want to try out this rose tea I would say to be cautious with your purchase for I hope that you will at least get an ounce for almost $10.
See you for the next cuppa!
P.S. I did send an email to the support team on Geeky Teas for the specifics on their Bad Wolf Tea but by the time I wrote this review no one got back to me.

1 thought on “Bad Wolf Tea from Geeky Teas. . . .”
I just looked over the website pretty exhaustively and even zoomed in on packaging pictured. No amounts listed in ounces or grams, not even under About Us or anything. The ONLY reference to size was on the first tea listed, Absinthe, and it said it was a three ounce package. Good catch, Karatics, on the amounts being absent. That is important info that needs to be listed on every tea.
