From Tea Runners

This gorgeous black tea has a base of strong Yunnan black tea leaves, packing a caffeinated punch and slight astringency, making this an excellent breakfast tea. But the addition of rose petals creates a heady and beautifully elegant character, while Madagascar vanilla bean sweetens and further elevates the decadence of this fabulous tea.

Sipdown (266)

Thank you Sil for sharing this one with me. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Despite the name and the many petals, this was a malty vanilla black tea. Smooth and really quite nice. Not overly floral, which is weird since its a rose tea.

Sipdown! The rest of this is over to VariaTEA for her and roswell to share. I suprisingly enjoyed this one more than i thought i might. I don’t like floral teas but this was light on floral and overall was pretty tasty.

The Tearunners subscription package came this week. I am not a fan of floral teas, so please bear in mind that this tasting note reflects my own bias.

First, there was a LOT of rose petals in the leaf. It was very pretty. The base was Yunnan black tea. Rose petals and Vanilla bean were the other two ingredients. I brewed 1 teaspoon in about 8 or 8.5 ounces of water for the recommended 4 minutes.

I did not taste the vanilla bean. I didn’t really taste the rose either. That could well be my faulty nose. I could taste a bitter note which became more bitter as it cooled. I drank about half the cup. Someone who enjoys floral teas might very well like this one a lot more than I did. Maybe I over steeped. Maybe 3 minutes would have been better. I don;’t think I will try this one again though. If you are someone who enjoys floral teas and would like to take this off my hands, feel free to email me at maddy barone at gmail dot com.

pencil shaving rose first comes to mind. you know that woody kind of taste of the end of a pencil crayon? seems to permeate the entire flavour. this is my first taste of this tea. maybe i’ll like it better as it cools.//
a few minutes later … still strongly tastes like pencil crayon shavings. the sweet is coming out a tad more. the base tea is a tad bitter. i steeped for 4 mins; perhaps i should have steeped for only 3. the package recommended 4-5.

I’ve never heard that descriptor used before, but I can 100% imagine exactly the smell/taste!! I love it!

Kiki tea

heh. i have a very weird way of describing things. i once said a wine tasted like bubble gum to a group of wine enthusiasts. they weren’t impressed.
