Well hello my tea lovers! Today’s tea post is all about one of my all time favorites! It has been mentioned before…yep, you guessed it, English Rose Tea. Now I am a big fan of floral teas in general- jasmine, rose, hibiscus, you name it and I will love it. But when I tell you that this English Rose Tea is one of the best rose teas that I have every tried- I am not joking.
Republic of Tea’s English Rose Tea is an herbal tea that comes in a round tea pouch. Although it is not a loose- leaf tea, the flavor, color and aroma present themselves thoroughly and wonderfully. When you pick up the tin, you immediately notice the Downton Abbey featured packaging; but when you check the back for more information, you will notice an exciting array of ingredients. Hibiscus, rose, raspberry and stevia!
When you pop open the tin, you are instantly greeted with a fruity and floral aroma. As you pour water onto the tea bag, you may be surprised by a beautiful fuscia color that gets darker and more vibrant with time. But once you take that first sip, nothing else matters. As you sip the English Rose Tea, you instantly get the rushing, vibrant flavor of raspberry, and a balancing background of rose petals. In my opinion, the best part about this harmonious blend is the stevia that is included in the ingredients that allows you to sip on this tea without any hassle or guilt of adding a sweetener.
Like I said, this is one of my all time favorite teas and I find that it goes well in many different ways. I have had it hot and iced and have loved them both equally. It also is one of those teas that can go with any food you eat, without making it taste like you are drinking just water or just grass. Another way I love this tea is paired with my Black Forest Cheesecake Cake.
Have you tried this tea? Or do you have a different rose tea that I should try? Let me know in the comments your thoughts!
