Description

Green tea and rosebuds or petals is a classic Chinese combination, and I first encountered the marriage of the two in Guangdong in the late 90s. In traditional Chinese medicine, green tea and rose together is believed to help with weight loss and to help with metabolizing dietary fat. I make no such claims here, but there are plenty of studies and resources online on green tea and rose tisanes, so if you're interested, there is research out there for you to look through! 

This blend is quite pleasant when brewed correctly: I found water at 75 Celsius to work best, and I use about two level teaspoons per 100ml (as I would with sencha). My infusions for sencha (and this tea) are 45 seconds, 30 seconds and 90 seconds long (three infusions in total). The tea tastes of roses, has nice calming energy from the polyphenols and a surprising date-like finish.

This blend is from Taiwan, and consists of Shizuoka green tea, Vietnamese green tea, hand sorted rose petals and dietary fiber. It is also lightly fragranced to make it taste 'rosier.' 

This is a great budget daily drinker, and would definitely go well with fatty meals!
