What our Citizens are saying about this great gift of the leaf...
This tea is SO GOOD. I had an impromptu tea party and based on its lovely fragrance, we drank this one first and it was a huge hit! It has a smooth rosewater taste, but is also a bold brew because of the black tea. I think it would be great any time of day, but is really the epitome of afternoon tea. If you like floral teas, don't hesitate to buy this one!
Absolute Perfection in a Teacup
I just brewed my first pot of Rose Petal full leaf black tea. This is the kind of cup that reminds me of how very much I love to relax with a cup of tea. When I opened the tin, I was surprised (and a little concerned) at the amount of rose petals and buds. But not to worry! it is just enough to smooth out the black tea, not at all overly perfumed or flowery. This is a tea that makes me want to sit back, put my feet up, and just enjoy.
This tea will always be the Queen of my Heart
This tea stole my heart two years ago when I picked it up for the first time around Valentines day from World Market. Ever since then I have had a love affair with loose tea but this one remains by far my favorite. I was devastated when last year I went back to stock up on another tin and they had changed my beautiful Queen of Hearts to a rose tea with hibiscus and raspberry! (which they still sell here)Convinced they no longer made it and it was a glorious fluke I hoarded my remaining Queen of hearts, periodically checking back on the website to see if they sold it there. Last week I went on to see again and what luck! My love was back as a seasonal item! I was not letting her slip through my fingers again so I bought the bag, now I will be good through December of next year (according to the sip by date) I'll just have to remember to come back around valentines when I run out to buy myself another bag. Please never discontinue this lovely tea, I have not found another black loose leaf rose tea that is not muddled up with so many other tastes it is hardly a rose tea at all. Try this tea;you will not be disappointed. Not overwhelmingly floral like most teas (lavender) subtle floral rose flavor (I love the little rose heads in the tea) with the deep satisfying black tea.
Beautiful cup of tea
The tea you receive looks exactly like the photo. The taste is divine. I will always have this in my cabinet.
Best Tea Ever
This tea is light and fragrant. With a great flavor. I'm a big English Breakfeast or Irish Breakfast tea. Well, any black tea really. But this is my ultimate favorite.
