Tea Review: Rose City (Cup of Tea)

Rose City
Cup of Tea
Type: Flavored Black
Origin: China
Product Description:
Rose city black tea is also known in China as Meigui Hongcha. The tea is scented in the traditional way: by layering red rose petals and tea leaves during drying. Once the right quality has been achieved, they are separated by sieving. This Chinese Rose Tea has a smooth and malty flavor, with a balanced bouquet of rose.
Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The aroma of the dry leaf blend is abloom with roses.

The copper red liquor has a perfume-like rose aroma while the taste is sweet and mildly astringent with rose notes throughout.

This tea blend was a celebration of roses!  I was pleasantly surprised by the sweetness and that the rose flavor wasn't overwhelming.  The first infusion provided the fullest flavor with a notably mellower second infusion.  I rather enjoyed the sweetness that developed by the third infusion.
