A rose by any other name… Oh, the lovely scent of roses. As a child, many of the important older women in my life all seemed to use a particular brand of rose lotion, giving me a definite sense memory of strong older, rose scented women who made me feel safe. And this tea definitely tripped that trigger. Highly scented, and very rose. I was enveloped in comfort as I inhaled the steeping brew.
But I also had a slight worry. I’ve had a few floral teas that taste like drinking perfume. Would this one taste like rose perfume? Smelling good is all fine and dandy, but the best memories can’t mitigate a cup of perfume. It would be downgraded to potpourri at that point. Luckily – my fears were TOTALLY unfounded. This tea tasted as lovely as it smelled. Unsweetened, it carried with it flavors of honey and an underlying sweetness. It also had a slight nuttiness to the brew.
I will definitely be purchasing some of this tea for myself. It had good memories, good aromas and good flavors. What could be better!
You can purchase the Rose directly from the Golden Moon Tea website.
