Product Details

Portland, Oregon, known as the City of Roses, is the home of Stash Tea. The metropolis's unique combination of rich volcanic soil and abundant moisture, coupled with a long, mild spring, creates the perfect conditions for growing world-class roses.

Prized since the dawn of history, roses are known as the queen of flowers. In 1985, Stash Tea developed this special tea blend in honor of the Portland Rose Festival held each June.

To create this romantic blend, we combine fragrant Rose Congou black tea from China with natural raspberry flavor. Although China produces a lot of great black teas, very little black tea is consumed within the country itself. Rose Congou, however, is one notable exception.

The black tea is spread with rose flowers while oxidizing; this exposure to aromatic rose petals lends a mild, flowery fragrance to the tea and creates a naturally scented, sweet cup. A few rose petals are left in the tea as decoration.

Our Rosebud black tea yields a smooth and aromatic cup when brewed. The tea is wonderfully aromatic, with a fresh quality that invokes the essence of damask roses. Rosebud tea is especially delightful with a touch of honey.

I absolutely love this tea! One of my all time favorites! It's perfect for morning or afternoon tea.I don't find it over powering at all.

I first tried this tea about 10 years ago. It is my favorite and I never tire of it. It is bold, aromatic, and delicious! Thank you, Stash!

death by roses!

Too. Much. Roses. I open up the tin and suffocated, but I brewed a cup anyway, thinking teas usually smell stronger when dry. Not this one. After brewing, the rose perfume is still overwhelming, overpowering even the raspberry flavor, which I couldn't smell or taste at all. May be a couple of brews later it'll be better, I thought. Nope. Still strong, and even a bit bitter even though I didn't over steep. I love rose tea, but this one is a sensory overload. Pleh...

This is a lovely afternoon tea! The raspberry flavour goes very well with the scent and sweet taste of the rose tea. I highly recommend this tea, especially for a delightful afternoon tea. I suggest serving it with a nice, not-too-sweet shortbread, as well.

I love the flavor of this tea! I mix it sometimes with a mild green tea and put it in the sun tea container & it's so good! <3 I will keep ordering this tea.

This is a good basic black tea, and the addition of roses really makes it pop. Although the raspberry flavor isn't super prominent, it is there and gives it a little extra astringency. Nicely fragrant of roses, and makes for a lovely quiet moment during my afternoon.

It taste like a traditional dark black tea mixed with roses! The rose is not overpowering at all though. An excellent black tea.

I'm not in love with the rosebud / black combination. I personally much prefer white / rose combinations. It's decent, though. I'll finish what I drank, but I won't buy more.

Disappointed

The rose flavor of this tea is really excellent. However, the raspberry is quite evident also. I am not a fan of fruit teas, and missed the mention of raspberry in the description.

I will not be ordering this tea again, and am giving away the 200g I already bought.
