This was the pot of tea that I ordered for myself during our afternoon tea service at Butchart. I was inspired by the large center section of the gardens dedicated solely to different types of roses. Though it wasn’t fully in bloom during our trip, it was just starting to bloom and seeing all the pops of colourful flowers among the bushes was lovely.

Plus, I’m a total sucker for a good rose black tea and Rose Congou are usually pretty predictably and consistently pleasant. One of the nice things about the blend, aside from the smooth florals that commanded the cup, was just how nicely it paired with pretty much our entire meal – the scones in particular, which had candied ginger and a really lovely fresh strawberry jam with marscapone clotted cream.

Of the three different tea houses we visited, I think Butchart was maayyybbbeee my overall favourite – not just for the tea but the food, service, and atmosphere as well. There’s one that gives it a run for its money though, but I’ll get to that in another tasting note.

My husband and I really enjoy this tea. We make sure to buy several packages whenever we visit Butchart Gardens to get us through until our next visit. We’ve tried other Rose teas, but have not been happy with them.

My first rose congou which I see is more than just a name for this particular pouch. I will have to try the others as much as I enjoy this one.
