drank Rose Scented by Harney & Sons
1 tasting notes

Beware this is a very rosy tea! The aroma is pungent, too pungent for my taste. The black tea base is reminiscent of Yunnan Golden Pu-erh from Teavana with honey undertones, a little overpowering though perhaps I steeped it for too long. I get some taste of soap, which is likely my aversion to the rose. I realize I do not much care for floral teas. Though it does leave a pleasant, flowery taste on the tongue, it is a bit scratchy at the back of the throat and the relaxing nature of the rose is in direct contrast to high levels of caffeine in the black tea; it gave me a bit of a jolt. I would recommend this only to lovers of rose; the scent for me is off-putting. What will I do with 4oz of this? Any blends one would recommend?
