Teapod is a UK based company that was launched in 2008. This tea consists of green tea from the Yunnan Province in China and rose petals. The dry leaves were long, thin and twisted in appearance. Rose petals are one of my favorite tea ingredients simply because they are so pretty to look at. I steeped this tea in my Breville One-Touch Tea Maker using 175 degree water for three minutes.
This tea was floral without tasting like perfume or potpourri. Rose always surprises me with how subtle it can be. The green tea was just barely there in the background, adding a touch of vegetal sweetness. It was a very mellow cup of tea but sometimes that is just what the doctor ordered. I would definitely recommend this tea.
