I love rose-flavored or rose-scented teas, whether black teas or green teas. I particularly like the rose aroma because it is bold and sharp, and able to hold its own even against powerful base teas. I find it hard to find good rose-flavored teas though.
Recently I started blending rose petals in with tea. I've had good luck buying rose petals in bulk in Mexican stores, but I recently sampled the rose petals from Shanti Tea and they were very good.
I find that mixing loose rose petals with loose-leaf tea produces much better results than most pre-blended rose teas.
Has anyone else tried this on their own? If not, I would highly recommend it, if you like the rose aroma and want to enjoy it with tea. I especially like rose with strong black base teas, and the edgier Chinese pan-fired green teas.
These teas can resemble virtually any flavor imaginable.
