I think it is this one, based on ashmanra detailed view of tea bag she got. Mine looked like same, even with those white small spheres. Ingredients were saying only: Black tea, flavouring. Anyway, it was a tea bag from Izzy.

To be honest, I never was, and probably never will be a fan of rose teas. They are usually soapy for me, sometimes it’s somehow overpowered by the rose and now and then it smells like a dish soap or just somehow weird.

This tea wasn’t greeting me with anything new. Foil wrapped tea bag smelled soapy. I wasn’t impressed.

Brewed, and I think I did about four minute steep, was better. The base tea was quite mellow and I assume it could be Ceylon mostly, as it was bit citrusy. But the rose was there and I liked this brew. It was quite nicely floral and… that’s it. Quite decent brew, though it does not make me happy they don’t even try to put some real rose in. Flavouring isn’t something I would like to see in a tea I get for 5,50 GBP per 25 tea bags.

And if you want to know what is difference between red and gray tea bags, let me answer: NOTHING, as I have asked them directly on their website chat. Happy for me as a tea bag collector, worse for anyone expecting some difference.

I am drinking almost everything. Tea bag collector who moved to wonderful world of loose leaf.

Trying to rate differently tea bags and loose leaf as tea bags have usually worse quality.

Photographer now and then. Postcrossing and geocaching member. Very curious person. Logistics student (should finish in June 2021).

Buried in tea right now. Is in my cupboard (trying to be updated) which sparkled your interest? Write me, I would gladly share with you. But I don’t want anything in return now :)
