Oh, the soft summer fragrance of freshly cut roses…

Oh, the soft summer fragrance of freshly cut roses. Selecting whole pink rosebuds for the purest fragrance, this elegant infusion is all about sweet simplicity: you could call it an English country garden in a cup.

There are few flowers more delicate than a velvety rosebud - we'd suggest they're best brewed lightly, to produce a sweet, rounded taste and a gently refreshing finish. A glass teapot is lovely for watching the petals infuse in the water, and you'll also find the rosebuds work rather well in recipes - why not try your hand at creating a sweet rose syrup? You'll find it goes down a treat in a champagne cocktail.

Even though they can be used on their own, I prefer to add a few rose buds to other delicately tasting teas. Rose buds add unforgettably fragrant smell. Not to mention looks stunning in a see-through tea pot. Definitely a money-worth buy.

Origin

Blended

Ever since our founder Walter Whittard weighed out tea leaves behind his high mahogany counter, we’ve been experimenting with our own inventive blends. The Chinese were the first to try blending tea leaves with fruits and flowers and it takes time, skill and imagination to master the art. It’s all about creating the perfect balance of flavours: we blind taste at least 20 different variations before settling on the perfect recipe. Just as some musicians have perfect pitch, an expert tea blender needs to have some pretty perceptive tastebuds…

    White Tea with Flavouring

    We like to think that Walter Whittard dreamt up this blend while taking a stroll in Chelsea Physic Garden one summer evening… The delicate taste of our signature White Peony tea is perfectly matched with floral fruit flavours, while whole pink rosebuds make for quite the afternoon tea showpiece. Super with scones and strawberry jam.

    No.28

    Flavoured Herbal Infusion

    Ah, the joys of a stroll in the garden… This herbal blend is a real treat for anyone with green fingers, and all those looking for a tea a little out of the ordinary. We've blended vibrant Yerba Mate with fragrant lavender, sweet Lemon verbena, and even an unusual addition of bamboo leaves. Yes, it's experimental. But it works.
