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!
Tea is a passion that quickly turned into an obsession, very similar to my love for polka dots, the horror genre, and anything that is geeky and fun.I drink all kinds of tea and will try a tea twice to make sure I didn't bumble the first infusion.
Besides SororiTea Sisters, I'm also the blogger and genius (I use that word very loosely) behind CuppaGeek, where I review tea, books, and the horror genre.
