A silky, fragrant blend of black teas with delicate rose petals.

The rose petals give this tea a luxurious scent without drenching the leaf in synthetic perfumes. We use Iranian rose petals and a blend of rich black from India and Africa to give depth and bright floral top notes.

Cost per cup based on 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water and 2 infusions.

Tasting Notes

The rose petals give this tea a luxurious and perfumed taste.  Malty Assamica with floral Darjeeling and notes of Turkish delight.

Quantity

Use 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water.

Temperature

For the optimum infusion use 80°C (176°F) water.

Time

Infuse for 1 - 2 minutes, tasting regularly.  Best enjoyed without milk.

Infusions

You can infuse this tea at least twice.  With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.

Origin & Craft

As a flavour pairing you may be surprised how well this tea goes with seafood. When the celebrated Danish Restaurant Noma went to Japan they made a truly sublime dish; dashi from rose petals into which the diner dipped noodles of finely sliced raw squid.

This inspired us to try our Rose Petal Tea with sashimi and the results were rather wonderful. Make a light infusion of just one minute to bring out just the elegant top notes and a the softest scent of roses.
