From T2

One of the all-time classic combinations. Delicate white tea is blended with pretty rose petals for a floral and wonderfully sweet-scented sensation. Often served in traditional Chinese tea houses, the rose blends harmoniously with the white tea’s downy buds and darker leaves. Preserving the refined nature of the tea, flowers add delicate sweetness that lingers from start to finish.

Ingredients: White tea, rose petals, artificial flavor

Brewing Guide: 1 tsp per cup, 4-6 min, 80 C (175 F)

I love this white tea with rose it makes for such a delicate tea that to me it is the perfect afternoon tea to accompany something sweet as the tea itself is so light with no lingering aftertaste allowing you to really savour what you are eating along with it.

I was disappointed when I opened the packet to see so much ‘dust’ and very chopped up leaves but in saying that it hasn’t distracted from the taste and it still delivers a very beautiful cup of tea.

The taste is of a very, very light tea – no bitterness, only a small amount of grassiness and an overshadowing of crisp rose. I enjoy the first infusion of this tea and prefer to start over again if I ever finish off a teapot but I find it lends itself to protracted drinking and I can make a teapot of this tea last a good hour, I also don’t find I’m put off if I let it get lukewarm which is handy as I have a tendency to really drag out my drinking of this.

It is one of T2’s more expensive teas but they often have it for sample in store in the summer months – I think because it’s such a light tea – so I’d recommend keeping an eye out for it.

White rose tea is the tea that got me drinking tea and this is a good white rose tea so I really recommend giving this to a friend who has yet to turn to the tea-side. :)

Sampler, yum! Yum. Yes. Delicious. Not quite as rosy on the second steep, but still lovely.

May Flowers! My second tea this month with the name “White Rose,” but at least this one makes sense to me, as it is actually a rose-flavored white tea (the other one was a black tea!) And while I love my White Rose black tea (which is a blend of rose and cream flavors, and has a very strong rose flavor), it can veer toward the astringent side because of the Assam. Though this tea doesn’t have the added cream note that I like, it also doesn’t have the astringency of the black tea, so I was quite interested in this one… Also, I was able to pick it up from T2 for free! (They weren’t able to fulfill an item on my order I made right after Christmas, so they sent me a giftcard for the inconvenience, which I cashed in during a “free shipping” sale. Woo!)

This is a great tea for rose lovers! It has a very light, silky mouthfeel, with a very strong rose flavor! It’s floral and leaves a sweet lingering taste in the mouth that has a subtle peppery note that I notice with other teas that have a nice, strong, rose flavor that comes through in the tea. I think the natural light, smooth, floral white base works especially well to carry the flavor.

If I’m in the mood for a stronger morning tea or a rose-flavored latte, I’ll stick with my other (black) White Rose, but this is definitely my pick for a refreshing light rose-flavored tea or an evening sipper. Yum!

Free Shipping sale? Oooh I’m Jealous now. Haha

It was just a luck of the draw sort of thing… I was browsing and saw it and it was one of those flash sale sort of things, so I was like, “Yup, cashing in that gift card now.” They normally have high shipping so I figured I’d never even use it unless I had a reason to make a large order again in the future, heh.
