Mable Ringling’s Rose Garden is one of the loveliest spots on the Ringling estate and, when in bloom, the most fragrant.
The 27,225 sq. ft. garden was completed in 1913 and is patterned after a traditional Italian circular garden design. While none of the original rose bushes planted by Mable survived many of today’s 1,200 rose plants are of the same types planted by Mrs. Ringling. A rose dedicated to Mable Ringling is also featured in the garden.
The garden is accredited by All-American Rose Selections and was named the 2006 most outstanding All-American Rose Selections Public Rose Garden in the nation.
In honor of Mable’s love of roses, we offer Mable’s Rose Rooibos Tea. A blend of rose petals, sweet cherries and rooibos for a caffeine-free thirst quencher. Delicious hot or iced.
Upon opening this tea’s package, I was met with the beautiful scent of cherries and roses. It smells delightful!
And it tastes so good! The rose and cherry flavors come together very well in this blend. The rose flavor is delicate here, but it is offers a nice contrast to the juicy, sweet cherry taste.
The red rooibos base does not present a strong presence in the flavor, but that’s just fine with me. I like the softer woody notes that I taste, and how well they work with the other flavors.
This is a really good blend. It is sweet and naturally caffeine free, and kids will absolutely LOVE this tea! Rooibos is a healthy alternative to sugar-packed soft drinks or juice cocktails. It is a drink that you’ll feel really good about giving them.
