This is my absolute favorite tea! In no way am I exaggerating when I say it is the best tea I have ever had in my life. I keep two tins at home at all times. The moment I finish one tin and open the back up, I immediately order another. This was also a great gift to my mom and grandmother. They both agree that this is a very calming tea. I would highly recommend!

The tea that started it all

I've been a Republic customer since the days when they were the brand carried by starbucks (20 years?). They are the company that started me on my obsession (21 teas and counting) and this tea was the one that started it all. My dad and I picked up a can of this out of curiosity and that was all it took. No one does tea as well as the Republic and their rose tea is no different. I've tried dozens of rose teas since then trying to find one as good as this and I'll tell you it doesn't exist. If your a fan of rose as a fragrance you'll love this tea because it's an aromatic so you smell it as much as taste it. And it's great with a little milk to make a tea latte!

The Best Tea I Ever Tasted

I've drunk tea for 40 years plus. Tea was suggested by my doctor in grad school as a substitute because coffee gave me a stomach ache. I like different teas, but found "my" tea about 8 months ago accidently, being given a sample at my tea shop. Black Rose Petal Tea is the best tea I've tasted in 40 years. I haven't tried any other flavor since I discovered it.

This tea blend is just what I was hoping for --- rich black tea base with a beautiful presence of roses --- an exotic experience. Most "Rose Petal" blends are either too "flowery" or too subtle. Republic of Tea gets it right!

Mmmm! The scent of roses lifts my mood like nothing else. I think at one time you also had green tea with roses; I do wish you’d bring that back, so that I could indulge in rose tea even late in the day, when black tea would keep me up.

I got this tea at a local coffee/tea shop, and I was in love from the first sip. The rose is incredibly strong in such a delicious way - this is one of those teas that I just sit and smell for a while. If you enjoy the scent of rose, this tea was made for you! The flavor is also incredibly smooth and comforting.

Best of the Rose teas I’ve tried

We like rose petal (sometimes called Congou) tea for ice tea but it is often hard to find. I was delighted to see Republic of tea offering it! Hands down, it is the best we’ve tried. It has to be steeped the full 5 minutes or it is too floral. I don’t put sweetener in mine but my SO puts in a little, about half of what he typically puts in regular ice tea. One note of caution, the rose buds seem to gather at the top of the canister. Make sure they are well blended or you won’t have a good balance later on!

We first tried the Rose Petal tea during a Victorian Tea party. We used a French press so everyone at the tables could enjoy watching the tea come to life as the petals and buds swirled around the glass carafe. It was a hit at the party. The flavor is just what you hope it would be, a wonderful rose flavor with a wonderful aroma. The Mountain Home Museum is hosting a Christmas Victorian Tea party and I had to make sure we ordered more, otherwise people would be disappointed. It is a wonderful tea.

This tea is wonderful! My first impression was how very pretty it was... maybe not a reason to buy the tea, but definitely a perk. The floral taste is light, not overpowering at all, and pairs beautifully with the black tea. I bought a small canister to begin with. I turned around and purchased the large bag as soon as I tried it, because I knew the small canister would not last me long at all. Delightful!

This tea is a nice floral scent when you bring the cup up to sip. Once you drink in the scent, your reminded of a wonderful summer breeze wafting over you. As your mind goes to that, you picture yourself on the front porch, sitting in your favorite chair. You receive a glorious scent of your roses that surround the porch you've cared for all summer. That beautiful scent of roses washes over you on your first sip. I highly recommend the rose petal tea, it made me feel all those things as I sat and enjoyed my first experience sipping on it. I had never had rose tea before and figured I'd treat myself. It sounds good doesn't? Well, it is glorious my tea loving family! ❤ 😊 ❤

I bought this tea as I found the prospect of the rose flavor attractive. I was not disappointed. When I opened the container I was met by the heady (but not overpowering) perfume, which I took some time to savor. The brew lived up to my expectations - just the right balance of tea (I am a black tea lover) and delicate rose flavor. I was left smacking my tongue for some time after. I enjoy this tea best brewed with just under boiling water, and sweetened with a little light honey. My (50 cup) container is now almost empty. I will definitely buy this one again!

I had some rose tea at a Chinese tea shop, and found this at Republic online after wanting to have this at home. My only complaint (and why I rated 4 out of 5) is that the black tea isn't as strong as I would have liked. I have mixed a strong Irish blend tea bag in my tea at times when I wanted a little more "oompf" to my tea. But the smell is DIVINE! And if you use rose syrup to sweeten your tea it is even better!

I purchased my first loose leaf Rose Tea at Harrods in London. It was so excited by it, that to avoid losing it I kept the container in my personal carry on when I returned home. It instantly became my favorite tea and the aroma always brings a smile to my face no matter how dreary the day may be. When it ran out I thought I would only find it at Harrods. Unfortunately, the cost was simply staggering, leaving me without my favorite tea. I am thrilled to have found this Rose Tea with the same flavor and aromas as the one I brought home from London.

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!

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.

As a migraine sufferer I've also been pleased to note that it seems to relieve my headaches a bit as well. The only sad thing about this tea is that it is seasonal.

Only available once a year, it's something I look forward to in January. This tea is so good, I used to buy it out in the store when it came in. I can no longer find it in the store, so I buy a year's supply when it comes on sale. Buy a tin and you won't be disappointed.

Tasted this at the MO Botanical Gardens and immediately went home to order the largest amount possible. It smells like roses and tastes like a smooth black tea. What else could you possibly want? The fact that there are rose buds in here makes me want to put it on display in a clear glass jar, but I don't know if that's good for the tea. I don't know much about tea or how to describe it, but all I can say is you have a fan for life with this one. It's smooth and it smells divine!!

I have loved this tea since early 2000 when Republic of tea was with barns n noble. I love the flavour which makes you feel like your tasting smelling a rose. Sounds odd but that is the sence you feel when your tasting. I am however not pleased by the new packaging. I loved the picture. If it was transfered onto the white background it would be more appeasing to me. So for right now Im reusing my can.

I bought this as the Queen of Hearts Tea, and this is my absolute favorite. Just breathing in the scent is a beautiful experience. I would love to scent my car with sachets made of it. I think it's the perfect blend of smooth black tea and roses. It's beautiful to look at too! I wish you would make this a regular tea!

Excellent - excellent - excellent! Once you open the package or tin, your senses are filled with the aroma of roses.

This tea is a delight for the senses! It is so beautiful to look at with the actual rose buds and petals that I nearly wish it were in a clear container. Its aroma is soothing and romantic, I could just put some into a sachet and place it in my lingerie drawer! The flavor is an equal match to its visual beauty and fragrance. Pull out your fancy English tea set and have a party because this tea is worth a celebration!

The first time I tasted this tea it was with friends at a delightful tea shop. I fell in love with its gentle flavor and aroma. I love curling up with a cup of this flavorful tea and indulging myself with a good book and a warm fire. I don't care for fruity type teas and this black tea with a hint of rose is right up my alley. I especially enjoy it with just a dash of milk, the way my dad use to drink it!

Memory reminds us of roses in December. Come January, this tea does a fine job too. I purchased this tea while on vacation, and once in a while, pull it out (keeps wonderfully in the tin), and make up a generous cup. Lovely to watch the tea leaves unfurl in the infuser. This is what real tea is supposed to be like. Gently pinch the rosebuds for a little more flavor. A delight to the senses. Creamy, smooth tea with no tannic 'bite' at the end of the sip. Lovely hot or iced, or 'doctored' with cream and rock sugar. Share, but maybe only a little! And smile while you enjoy.

The rose notes were perfectly balanced with the black tea -- not overpowering, but definitely present. I preferred a shorter brew time; the longer brew was a bit too vegetal for me, but three-and-one-half minutes gave me the perfect cuppa.
