Ingredients: Black tea, Rose Petals and Rose Essence.
Another strong scent is unleashed as I open the packet. Pure rose, sweet and very perfumed fills my nostrils. It smells rose enough to be a natural perfume, or essential oil. It’s beautiful!
Steeping time of 3 minutes in boiling water with a splash of soy milk added.
Once steeped the tea contains the same strong rose scent as it’s raw form.
The first few sips reveal a sweet, creamy rose flavour that resembles Turkish Delight. It’s super sweet, super strong and super natural rose. Unbelievable! Each sip carries a burst of flavour and is as delicious as the first sip. The base is lightly malty but is behind the beautiful rose flavours.
As it cools it reminds me of Rose Syrup, a thick cordial drink I get from an Asian supermarket nearby. It’s nothing but rose and sugar, again fitting with the Turkish Delight vibe.
