I’ve had Rose Chai before from a few different companies. Some have been extremely floral because of the rose and others being extremely chai because of the spices. Rose Chai from Tea Dude went about this offering in a different way
Tea Dude’s Rose Chai has – what I would consider – mellower spicy chai flavors and more delicate rose flavors, too! Both the chai and the rose are a bit more muted than other chais or rose chais that I have had in the past. If you are looking for an enjoyable cuppa without the LOUD flavors this might be more your speed compared to the ones that tend to go the ‘spicier the better.’
One thing I did want to point out is that Tea Dude included Rosehips in his Rose Chai. Most other Rose Chais I have tried just contain rose petals not BOTH Rose Petals AND Rosehips. This is certainly a PLUS in my book! Rosehips are the actual fruit from the rose tree and are high in Vitamin C. I found the Rosehips in this Rose Chai to be barely noticeable in terms of flavor but I am completely ok with that because I don’t think I would want a fruity type taste in this cuppa.
Rose Chai from Tea Dude was a decent Rose Chai, indeed!
Here’s the scoop!
