Episode 181: Summer Rose


Rose is used a lot in teas for visual appeal and for its mild, floral taste. Too much rose can make a blend soapy and unpalatable, and too little rose can get drowned out by other flavors. Where does Adagio’s Summer Rose fall along that spectrum?

Survey says…serve it iced. As a hot tea, the rose petals and flavor and Ceylon base are overpowering. But once the tea cools, the flavors mellow out a bit the rose provides a nicer contrast to the malty Ceylon. If you’re a fan of rose, this blend might just be the bouquet for you!
