Anhui Province, China.
Also known as 'Meigui Hongcha', Rose Petal Black is a blend of the popular Chinese black tea 'Keemun' and fragrant red rose petals.
The small leaf tea from Qimen county of Anhui province is best known as the main ingredient for the popular 'English Breakfast' blends.
Red Rose Petals:
Although there is a whole universe of rose varieties and flavors, the ideal for combining with Keemun are the red roses native to Qimen county. They have a distinct, sweet, cooling aroma that lends great balance to the blend.
Rose Petal Black pairs well with slightly spicy and oily foods. It also makes a good iced tea. One of our favorite recipes is to prepare a sauce from Rose Petal Black and pour it over vanilla ice cream.
Late Summer is ideal for blending Rose Petal Black. This is when the flowers are in full bloom and at their most fragrant. Since it is a hardy black tea, it holds up well over the months.
The Tao of Tea:
Like the Tao, the art of tea is universal. We began our work with tea in 1997 to be a connecting thread for tea culture. Practicing the art on a daily basis in our teahouses in Portland, Oregon, we are a group of tea enthusiasts from different backgrounds and cultures. We travel, learn, take delight and seek to offer pure leaf teas with great flavor, artistry and soul. Our reward comes through actions that help people's lives, sustain the art of tea and promise a healthy environment.
Brew one level teaspoons of leaf in eight ounces of pure spring or filtered water at 185° F for four minutes.
Black tea leaves, red rose petals, natural rose essence.
iHerb Customer Reviews
This tea is just one of the best I know. It smells heavenly (real roses scent) and tastes like... Oh gosh, there is no word to desribe it ! Really sweet, almost fruity I should say... It doesn't taste bitter at all, even if you "forget" it a little ! Even my roomies, who are not really into tea, have loved this one (without adding any sugar)... Will buy it again, definitely !
I fell in love with this tea instantly. It's a pure black tea with dried rose petals in it that add a terrific aroma and flavor to the black tea.
I infused this and drank like water. Smells great.

Only one problem is, days before cycle, abruptly it felt like disgusting. I usually do with other things while my cycle, like soap\ emulsion\ fragrance\ even foods. Someone likes me, taste after end of your cycle. Cause it's worth it. It has double cap lids.
Delicious & Fragrant

This tea is great but it is very particular. If one likes the smell of rosewater - one would enjoy this tea. Otherwise, better skip it. No one else but me likes this tea in our household.
