This tea has a citrus smokey taste. It is sweet without being bitter. I tried it with and without cream and prefer it without. Also too much sweetener makes it taste like candy which is way too much. A little agave is fine or honey. Brewed with spring water…1 TB for 2 1/2 cup pot. The flavor is interesting and unusual. I would not like it weak or iced or over steeped. I did not taste definate rose or chocolate.
Well, I keep going back to see if I am going to change my mind about this tea. After 4 tasteings using Spring Water to brew…a 2 cup pot…using 1 TB and letting the tea steep for about 5 min. also with sugar instead of honey or agave and cream instead of milk. I love this tea!!! The roasting of the leaves is just enough to give a subtle smoke like the experience of chicory coffee at Cafe du Monde in New Orleans. The mocha note with orange is just and not cloying. This is not too girly. Solid robust flavor.
This is such a beautiful girly tea. Small rose buds…perfect and sweet but not perfumy. The taste is more of fruit and rosehip with a nose that brings on Springtime. This is definately tea party tea. Steep 5 min. at 212 degrees 2 tsp per 8oz water. Good 2nd pour. Lovely aroma and flavor. Milk works well.
