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!

Tonight was just one of those nights were I was craving an herbal tea. I looked thru my tea stash and stumbled upon this beauty. I have been wanting to try tea from the Tea Dude in a long time and it was finally time!
This particular tea is an herbal with a lemon flair. First whiff of the dry leaves you definitely get that familiar herbal aroma but with a fresh kiss of a citrus touch. Gentle yet there. I couldn’t wait to steep this up. Scooped out a few scoops into my tea pot and boiled water. About 8 minutes later, I was ready to try my first sip.
The description nails this one. This tea does have a candy sweetness that reminds you of PEZ. I love candy so this was perfect for me. Sweet with a lemon twist in every sip. There isn’t an earthy or grassy like flavor that you can get from herbals. This is just straight delicious lemon flavored herbal tea. This tea is a perfect tea to just sit down with a good book and snuggle in. Or with a good show and binge all 5 seasons in one day. I can see myself getting lost with a cuppa of this in a horror movie. I can also see this being an incredibly soothing tea to enjoy after a long stressful day or even if you have sinus issues like I do. Calming, relaxing, soothing and great tasting. . .I’m so impressed with this delight!
To me this is the perfect herbal tea. Sweet yet not overly so with a hint of that honeybush flavor I do so enjoy. Lemon Candy Pez. . . I’m in!
