Rose Congou

5 star average rating
9 Reviews Write a Review
Quality China black (Congou) tea is scented with rose blossoms, creating a naturally aromatic, sweet cup. This tea is occasionally referred to as Lotus Tea, but should not be confused with the flavored tea blend bearing that name. A new lot with rose petals.

  • As I stated in past reviews I dislike flavored teas. I love this one. Delicate beautiful aroma and taste that's not over powering. There are times when one needs the "soothing nature of roses" of this cuppa. Make a pot and enjoy.
  • Sweet, floral

  • This tea is very strongly flavored with rose. It's pleasant on occasion, but I do find the rose scenting to be strong to the point of being cloying for my personal tastes. This tea needs no additional sweetening as it is very sweet on its own.
  • This is BETTER

  • A few years ago I bought this tea and it was really quite awful.I love rose, jasmine, and osmathus,scented teas and this is perfect.First it' a great thick mouthfeel, which to me is one of the most important qualities in a good tea. Second the scenting is obviously done with real rose and not a fake scent it lite and natural. Just a pinch of sugar
  • A very nice small pleasure, made a good impression as a gift

  • I bought a tin of this for my spouse as a small holiday gift and it was much appreciated. I’ve tried it once now and enjoyed it too. It makes a really nice impression the moment you open the tin with a strong rose sent and the large pieces of dried pink petals visible (brewed, it’s much more balanced).

  • I have always been a fan of rose flavored foods and this is probably the best rose tea I've ever had. The delicate rose flavor and scent is soft and inviting and subtle. It doesn't pummel your senses into a rose hand-to-hand death battle that you so frequently find in other company's blends. Excellent work, Upton. I WILL be getting this again.

  • I wanted a rose-scented tea and this fits the bill perfectly - lovely tea with strong scent, less strong flavor but clearly rose-y.
  • Very affordable everyday tea

  • Rose scent with some Asian herbal nuance. Sometimes I find this more satisfying than other more expensive ones.
