Definitely noticed the flavor and heady aroma of rose in this tea. It was pretty intense in this floral quality, kind of like an IPA, without the bitterness.

It left a very nice, semi-sweet rose and almost vegetal aroma as an aftertaste as well. I use the word vegetal here for lack of a better term – not like sencha – but it’s probably what they call ‘evergreen’ in their description. To me, it was related to green vegetables, but not like pine.

It was also a bold Darjeeling, so that’s probably from the fact that it is autumnal. It would definitely make a good breakfast tea, too. Not my favorite of the samples from RTR, but I liked it.
