Rose Congou by Perennial Tea Room

Today’s cup of tea is @perennialtearoom Rose Congou. Tea growers used to cut rose blossoms from plants near the tea fields and sprinkle them into the tea, creating a delicate and aromatic cup. These days, Chinese black tea (Congou) is scented with rose during the drying process, creating a floral, sweet cup. This loose tea also contains dried rose petals, which adds a pretty pop of color to the leaves. Smooth and wonderfully scented, I enjoyed the cup quite a bit. The tea would hold up well to a bit of milk if you like your tea that way, but I usually avoid diluting the flavor. Either way, if you have an opportunity to order from Perennial Tea room, I would certainly add this to your cart to enjoy.
