I have to say I have no personal connection with the tribute story behind this tea but I was excited to try Rose & The Doctor from A Pinch of Geek regardless! I know Nichole (AKA Cuppageek) is a major fan of the show and I have to say I am almost to the point of wanting to start the series! Perhaps this tea is the final push I need?
Rose & The Doctor from A Pinch of Geek is basically an Earl Grey with a heavy load of aromatic rose petals. There are also hints of lavender and vanilla, too. Even tho they are only ‘hints’ of those two ingredients I think they play a very important part in this flavor combination. The petals seem to stomp on the earl grey and the lavender and vanilla seem to even it out and provide a tad of creaminess to it, too!
I was a bit concerned at the amount of rose petals I was seeing. Would it be ‘all rose’ and no black tea flavor? I was hoping that wasn’t the case. And it WASN’T! Everything meshed together so nicely. I don’t think I would change a thing! I can officially say I’m a fan of Rose & The Doctor from A Pinch of Geek! Now…will a be a fan of the show Doctor Who? Time will tell.
Here’s the scoop!
Leaf Type: Black Tea
Where to Buy: Pinch of Geek
Rose & The Doctor is my nod to one of my favorite shows, Doctor Who. This tea is Earl Grey black tea with a hint of vanilla blended with a touch of lavender, rose hips, and dried roses. This tea does have high caffeine. This tea blend has no artificial flavorings or added flavor oils. There are no added sugars or flavorings.
