I admit it, I am not a Supernatural fan. Only because of time. I have engulfed myself in so many other shows that this one has just gone by the way side. Specifically as of late, we have been watching a ton of Northern Exposure and Game of Thrones. Jason and I have been binging like mad on Northern Exposure and now with GoT over and we have just about finished up with the whole Northern Exposure show, I’m hoping I can jump right into Supernatural. So please forgive that I’m in the dark with the references to Cas.
What I can talk about is the tea itself. I have been craving rose petals in tea as o f late. Something that I’ve touched on in my blog-CuppaGeek. I tried a rose herbal that turned my thoughts completely about having rose petals in my teas that I drink. Typically I wouldn’t give them a second look. Anymore, I am reaching out and craving for those beautiful flowers to be in my tea.
This is a black tea with rose petals. These particular rose petals are more of a peach color than the pink or purple ones I have had in the past. I brewed this up like a typical black tea- 212F-1 cup water-2 min in my glass teapot. Let this cool just for a few seconds before taking my first sip.
First sip in and this is the flavor I have been craving. The black tea providing a smooth background and the rose petals added a slight sweet flavor. Simple but very well done. This is a tea that could get muddled pretty quick with having too much of the black tea in and not the proper ratio of black tea to rose petals. What I would love to see is maybe a touch of vanilla or honey added in to kick the sweetness up a notch and giving the tea more dimension. But even as it sits, this is a subtle tea that would be perfect tea for any time of the day. Another gem found on Etsy. Great job Chris & Alexa@ Frandom Teas. Can’t wait to try the rest!
