A friend gave me a tin of this tea on New Year's Day 2015, and I have since reordered it three times. The rose scent is something I've not encountered in a black tea before. When I found the cost of having it shipped from France too dear, I asked a local tea purveyor to attempt to copy it. They got the tea flavor, the citrus flavor, and the berry-ish flavor right, but it was missing the rose flavor/scent. When I discovered I could avoid paying for international shipping by purchasing from Market Hall Foods, I was elated.
This is one of our favorite Mariage Freres teas, it is delicate with a little bit of a floral aftertaste.
I first tried this when I was traveling in France and it is truly the most aromatic and pure tea available! A great choice when you want to treat yourself to a relaxing tea time!
I was introduced to this tea by a friend. She called it her "special guest" tea. From the first sip I was hooked. I am so glad to be able to get it from Market Hall Foods. While it is somewhat pricey, it is well worth every penny.
