Sencha Green Tea by The Tea Can Company. . . . .

I steeped this tea in one cup of 175° water. It comes in a sweet little tea sachet that I somehow managed to rip a hole in. (Good job, me.)

However, I was intrigued by the ingredient list: Oolong, rose petals, natural flavors (assuming vanilla flavor). I absolutely love anything with rose petals and pretty much anything that says vanilla! The dry leaf of this smelled very yummy. I could smell the vanilla and rose mingling together with the oolong and it was Read More
