This is take two. I have to say this tea seems better today. I did brew it at a lower temp (exact temp unknown since I’m at work). The black tea’s flavor is gentler in today’s brew and the rose while still not as strong as I’d like is more noticeable. I think my scoop had a few more rose buds as well today. Interestingly, when at it’s hottest, the flavors were well balanced. Then the black tea peppery flavor became dominant and as it cooled further, the rose became more dominant.

I’m a Christian family medicine doctor, a wife, and a mother.

I enjoy tea obviously. Time is often limited to enjoy it especially with 2 littles.

I tend to prefer black teas or Oolong. I love florals. I could drink a breakfast blend most times of the day- although sadly I’ve become more sensitive to caffeine over the years.

Music: I play the flute and piano. I usually listen to Christian music or my daughters kids music.

Jane Austen is one of my favorite authors.

I absolutely fell in love with the UK when I traveled over there and can’t wait to go back.
