You make me blush. Elegant India black tea with organic strawberries and a rose petal or two.
This is really good – surprisingly good for a bagged tea!
This tastes like a delicious Rose Congou tea that has been livened up with strawberry flavor. The black tea base is a pleasant tasting black. It is fairly mellow, but there is a hint of bitterness toward the end of the sip. There really isn’t a whole lot to say about the black tea because really, the rose and the berry are the real stars of this show!
The rose is very well pronounced (like I said, it tastes like a Rose Congou). I really like rose in tea so I am finding it rather lovely. The strawberry is a bit more delicate than the rose, but the flavor develops as I continue to sip. There is very little tartness from the berry; just fresh strawberry sweetness melding with the feminine notes of the rose.
There is an interesting contrast between the rose and the berry. Such a unique and flavorful combination!
