When I want to relax and grab something a little indulgent, I like to have a cup of rose petal tea. The first time I encountered rose petal tea, I wasn't sure what to expect. I had mixed feelings about the "rose" flavor.
For my birthday, I received some Rose Petal Tea from The Republic of Tea. Upon steeping, I could already tell I was in love. The aroma of the tea is certainly floral. Since roses are my favorite flowers, the aroma immediately induces a relaxed feeling.
The flavor of the tea is very enjoyable. It is definitely floral but there is a certain sweetness to the roses that is interesting. The roses are combined with black tea. I am definitely a black tea fan--I particularly love Earl Grey--so I love this tea!
The Republic of Tea Rose Petal Tea is a seasonal tea and is available around Valentine's Day. Tazo Tea also has a rose tea--their Rest Tea--which is great! It is an herbal tea--so a little different than The Republic of Tea's version.
If you haven't tried a rose tea before, definitely give it a chance!
