Taster’s Review:

Oh … WOW!  This tea is absolutely dreamy!  Like some sort of euphoric dream that’s been scented with roses and ginger and even a hint of smoke.  That’s not only what it smells like, it’s what it tastes like too!

It’s amazing!  The sip begins with an introduction from the rose.  It is a sweet and almost intoxicating rose flavor that is not bitter, it’s not even what I would consider to be sharp.  It is a distinct rose flavor, but, at the same time, it is unlike the rose flavors that I’ve experienced in teas before.

Shortly after your palate has become acquainted with the rose, a smooth yet smoky note from the Ti Quan Yin Oolong comes through and imparts its silky texture.  The smoky flavor is not at all off-putting, rather, it seems to unite perfectly with the rose and the ginger to create a complete flavor experience.

The ginger comes in next, and this is not a strong, peppery kind of ginger, but rather, an almost sweet note of warm spice.  It doesn’t taste hot or spicy, just mildly warm and enchanting.  The sip finishes with a slightly drying astringency, and the aftertaste lingers with the perfumed flavor of rose and whispers of ginger.

This tea is absolutely lovely.  Words cannot even begin to adequately describe just how lovely it truly is!  It is a tea that must be experienced to appreciate fully.  What a delight!

Tasters Review:

This is so PRETTY!!!  You’ll have to see it or SMELL it for yourself to believe it!  Everything about this tea shouts CLASSY! 

Ti Quan Yin Oolong with Fresh Ginger and Turkish Rose from Aftelier Perfumed Teas is a truly unique sipping experience!  But the fun doesn’t stop there!  This tea awakens ALL of the senses!

The Before Infusion Aroma is very fragrant and beautiful.  The first thing that came to mind was…A Rose is a Rose is a Rose!
The Post Infusion Aroma was that of a Rose and Ginger Combo.
The Taste was a nice flavored oolong!   The rose and ginger flavors seemed to have met in the middle which I really appreciate.
The Aftertaste was even floral!

This was brilliantly done and very enjoyable -not to mention – memorable!  It holds up well to multiple infusions, too!
