Brew a Perfect Cup
Ideally warm the pot first with a splash of hot water. Use one teabag per cup and always use freshly drawn and boiled water. Allow to brew for 3-5 minutes according to taste. Can be drunk with or without milk.
This tea is not recommended for people who want a rose-flavoured tea. The rose is completed masked by a generic and cheap-tasting fruit flavour. As opposed to being subtle and slightly sweet as rose tea usually is, this is tart and overly fruity. Not at all as advertised.
I was trying to go for a rose-flavoured tea, but I could barely taste the rose at all! Overpoweringly fruity, and I'm not 100% sold on fruit tea. Makes a refreshing ice tea though, even if that isn't the intention.
I was given some rose tea from another renowned tea company which I loved and when theirs was no longer available I was excited to find this. I presumed from the name that the "sun-ripened fruit" would take a back-seat to the rose flavouring but all I can taste is strawberries (which I hate!). Very disappointed.
So disappointing. I've lost my usual rose tea and was thrilled to think I might have found a substitute, unfortunately I will have to keep looking. Smooth tea but no rose.
This is a delightfully refreshing tea, hot or cold
