    Odd, But Tasty
    October 16, 2012
    I just had my first cup of this today, pretty much as soon as I got it out of the mail. I wasn't sure what to expect, and that's what drew me to it. Which flavor would dominate: the raspberry, the roses, the chocolate, the tea itself? For those who may wonder the same, the roses do dominate, but the other flavors don't get lost. It's aromatic, sweet, rich, a bit odd, and would, I think, work for a second, somewhat milder infusion (which I intend to try). I tried a sip with nothing in it, a sip with just demerara raw sugar, and then I added a splash of half-and-half. I liked it best with the demerara raw sugar and the half-and-half.

    My overall impression is "odd, but tasty," which is how I described it to my Mom. (She was here when I made it and asked how it was.) I think it's probably one that you love or hate. If the ingredients appeal to you, try it. If you hate the scent and taste of roses, you'll want to pass on it.
