The aroma of this tea knocked me right over: I was a little afraid when I ordered it that the rose would be an artificial flavor or perfume and was pleasantly surprised to see rosebuds in the loose leaf. That said, the scent of roses was so strong I was still slightly afraid for the flavor.

However, the tea brews up beautifully with a sweet, mild, smooth liquor and just the aroma of roses. The rose scent fades as you re-brew (very significantly), but the flavor of the Dian Hong is pleasant enough that I didn’t mind.

On the first brew, you get a very pleasant after-aroma of roses that lingers somewhere between the back of your mouth and nose. Later brews are mild and leave no astringent bite.

Flavors: Rose, Smooth, Sweet
