"My favorite of Upton's rose-scented teas and likely the most strongly scented... The base lends itself well to a longer steep time--apparently the leaves are relatively low in tannins. This benefits concentration of the rose flavor. A definite re-order." kd

"Not sure what happened with this tea as it used to be one of my favorites. The last two lots I've received have had a strong vinegar odor in the package and in the tin, quite overpowering and obscuring the rose odor."
