type: black

origin: sri lanka flavors

caffeine: strong

price level: $$$$

Our Summer Rose tea invokes the sweet lingering fragrance of late Summer Roses winding up a garden trellis. Mellow and deliciously floral, this rose tea is balanced with the bright briskness of a Ceylon black tea. Served hot or iced, it will bring to mind green lawns, porch swings and sunny warm days. Steep at 212°F for 3 minutes

      One that I wish I had discovered earlier in the summer! Lovely combination of the Ceylon and rose, plus the rose fragrance when opening the bag was a pleasant surprise.

      still thinking about rose petals and tea - my nick is rose, and they're my fave flower, but tea? acquired taste

      This tea tastes like picking roses for my mother when I was five. Some might say the flavor is too strong, but I like it that way.

      One of my favorites. Just enough rose to be nicely floral, not so much as to be overpowering.

      Very flora and rosy. I'm not a fan of rose flavor so I will pass on this one

      This rose tea isn’t quite strong enough on the rose for my taste - still, a pleasant tea to enjoy any time of year.

      The rose flavor is too overwhelming to me, I was expecting just a hint of floral flavor but this is an overdo

      I wanted to like this one as rose is a flavor I enjoy. It was just way too much floral for me. Smell was amazing but tasted too soapy for me.

      The rose flavor is overwhelming and makes the tea so floral

      I hated this tea. It's bitter and the rose flavor makes me feel like I'm drinking soap.

      The rose is a bit over powering on it's own. I did find that i enjoy it with milk, honey and vanilla added to it....which tones down the rose flavor.

      I'm not a fan of rose (the flavor), and this tea only solidified that preference. It was undrinkable for me, and I usually try to drink at least a full cup of any new tea before I decide whether or not I like it.

      I'll be honest, I don't like teas with rose, but I decided to give this a try and I actually liked it. Not something I will always drink, but the rose wasn't too terribly strong, and you could still taste the black tea. Not bad at all.

      I'm not a huge fam of tea with rose, but I do enjoy this every once in awhile.

      I was never a fan of floral teas until I had the opportunity to try this blend. I've tried other since, but this is one of the few I actually enjoy.

      This tea is one of my favorite teas! The rose flavor is lovely but not overpowering. Enjoy with a splash of sweet cream coffee creamer.

      My go-to tea! It's rich, aromatic, and floral, but somehow not 'dark' like the Valentines Tea (which contains many of the same ingredients). Whenever I need a pep in my step, I boil up a cup. It provides the perfect dose of caffeine without being overbearing. Making a cup in the morning ensures my kitchen (and later my office) smells rosey (no pun intended). A feast for the senses! If you've never tried Summer Rose, it's a great tea all year round--not just the hottest time of the year.

      Smells like roses, and tastes like it too! It's not overpowering but subtly pleasant to just sit back and sniff this tea!

      One of my all time favorites!! It smells like you're walking through a rose garden summer, so, exactly what it says. I love love love this tea!
