English Rose Loose Tea
Out of stock
We've recreated the taste of a classic "Meigui Gongfu" rose tea by using a loose leaf black tea for the base, imbued with subtle floral flavours and scattered with rose petals.
It was during China's Ming Dynasty that tea artisans first experimented with buds and blossoms, imbuing the loose leaves with essential oils. The tea might be authentically Chinese, but those wonderfully aromatic notes of rose are forever England.

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.
