It was during China's Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644) that tea artisans first experimented with buds and blossoms, imbuing the leaves with essential oils. Roses were among the very first flowers they tried and osmanthus, orchids and jasmine also proved popular.
We've recreated the taste of a classic 'Meigui Gongfu' rose tea by using a Chinese black tea for the base, imbued with subtle floral flavours and scattered with rose petals. The tea might be authentically Chinese, but those wonderfully aromatic notes of rose are forever England. Deliciously delicate and seductively sweet, a single sip brings to mind rolling hills, church bells and country gardens: perfect for a picnic on the village green.

DisappointedBy Hello from London on 01/22/2019I have always loved the Whittards English Rose loose leaf tea, and I decided to purchase the teabags for the convenience. Straight away I noticed that they smelled completely different to the tea, but I gave them the the benefit of the doubt. However upon brewing the tea you could not even smell or taste that it was rose tea. It was just black tea.

Brew the Perfect cup
The origins of tea lie in China: legend has it that it was discovered when a few leaves fell into the mythical emperor Shennong's cup of hot water. Today China produces thousands of different varieties ranging from black and green tea to more unusual teas, like puerh or yellow tea.
Fully oxidised for a rich, robust flavour, black tea is the most popular type of tea in the western world – and for good reason. Its full body and depth of flavour make many black teas ideal for drinking with a splash of milk, while more delicate varieties like Darjeeling express a huge range of complex characteristics.
