It was during China's Ming Dynasty that tea artisans first experimented with buds and blossoms, imbuing the leaves with essential oils. We've recreated the taste of a classic "Meigui Gongfu" rose tea by using a 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.

Beautiful fragranced teaBy LouLou from Bournemouth on 03/28/2019I've tried other places for rose tea but nothing beats Whittards, it has a lovely fragrance and delicate taste of rose.I love this tea!By Sammyspire from Chesterfield on 03/26/2019If like me you love anything rose flavoured this is the tea for you. I love the fact that it does taste like roses and tea, not something wishy-washy. I don't take milk or sugar in my tea so not sure what it tastes like with those additions but as a black tea it is fab.Great teaBy Millie from London on 03/26/2019The smell and flavour is very rosy, elegant and summery. One of my favourite tea.English Roseon 06/23/2018I thought I was buying black tea with a subtle hint of floral rose. What I got was a mouthful of overpowering perfume and sweet/sickly jack fruit.

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.
